Minsmere: Special birthday for much-loved reserve

ONE of the county’s best loved landscapes has reached a landmark age.

RSPB Minsmere nature reserve celebrates its 65th birthday this week.

To celebrate Minsmere’s landmark birthday, the RSPB is organising a Spring Celebration this weekend.

Wardens and volunteers will be at key locations around the nature trails and hides to help visitors to see some of Minsmere’s special wildlife.

Early risers can book a place on a dawn chorus guided walk to hear nightingales, bitterns and more. The walks start at 4am each day, returning for breakfast in the Minsmere cafe.

Booking is essential, call 01728 648281 to book.
