Calling early birds …. to hear early birds calling


When it comes to a delightful dawn chorus, there are few better than that over Surlingham Broad and surrounding marshes.

This May we are taking to the water in Canadian canoes every Wednesday morning to immerse ourselves in cheeps, tweets, warbles and booms (thank you Strumpshaw bitterns); we may even come across an elusive otter or two.

Paddling from Alderfen Marshes, drift through the winding waterways of Surlingham Broad, take in a stretch of the River Yare and return via the open water of Bargate to experience the best of our local waterways as the wildlife wakes.

6.00 – 7.30am: Wednesdays 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th May

£15.00 per person includes canoe, paddles and buoyancy aids. Children must be accompanied by an adult in every canoe.

For more information or to reserve a place, please contact Stephen Ferrey on 07788 154755.
