A first class reserve with good cafe and shop.Friendly staff and good hides. We saw Marsh harriers and Avocets Lapwing,Egrets and Shellduck, Heron and Reed Warblers, Skylark and more. A lovely setting to relax and enjoy the wonderful views and birdlife.

We stopped off to warm up, the weather was bitterly cold, grab a drink and a bite to eat. With local crab sandwiches on the menu it was a no brainer. Nice thick brown bread, plenty of meat and bit of garnish....excellent stuff.

Hi I understand that folk singer Chris Wood is scheduled to appear at the Cley and Salthouse visitors centre in July, do you have any further information on this gig? Many thanks

As above I'm afraid. Have you googled Chris Woods website? There should be a play list on there. What a lovely venue for a folk concert if he is on there. Have fun.
