Situated on the northern side of the main village at Mill Street it crosses the River Wensum a short distance from the old watermill now a private dwelling.
A narrow pedestrian pavement provides birdwatchers with excellent views both east and west along the grazing meadows either side of the river. There is also a narrow bridge over a drainage ditch nearby which is also worth a look. Check the fence lines along the ditch for stonechat during the winter and kingfishers fly along the ditch or perch on overhanging vegetation throughout the year.
Birds in winter Wldfowl (pink-footed geese associate with the greylags occasionally), kingfisher, gulls, common buzzard, occasional red kite, sparrowhawk, little egret, little grebe, siskin.
Birds in summer Kingfisher, grey wagtail, common tern, house and sand martin, swallow, swift, chiffchaff, willow warbler.
Scarcer species Wintering bittern, great white egret, whooper swan; osprey (spring passage migrant) & hobby in summer.
Access There is very limited parking space available; take care on the bridge and road as visibility for motorists is poor when approaching from Mill Street.
Please do not enter the meadows as they are private land and respect the local resident’s privacy.
