These Wild Walks are lead by experienced ecologist and ornithologist, Mark Watson who has lived and worked on the North Norfolk Coast for many years.
He has conducted research on raptors and waders and has a DPhil from Oxford University. The aim is to walk the creeks at Low Water, looking at all the wildlife of the salt marsh. This includes birds, mammals, invertebrates and plants.
We will identify species, learn field skills and talk about how the ecosystem is governed by the twice daily tides, historic land use, climate change and how things might look in the future.
Mark's philosophy is to share knowledge and an approach to the natural world, leading to deeper understanding and appreciation for each person.
Walks will last up to 3 hours and commence at our HQ in Wells.
Wellington boots or sand shoes and shorts will be suitable - keep in mind that wading in shallow water may be needed to cross some sections of creek. Also, it will be muddy and slippery in places. Please bring binoculars and suitable clothing for the weather conditions.
Walks are suitable for all ages - sorry, no dogs, in order to avoid disturbance to birds.
