Minsmere - Nature Reserves of Suffolk
Set on the beautiful Suffolk coast, Minsmere offers both families and birdwatchers an enjoyable day out. Nature trails take you through a variety of habitats to the excellent birdwatching hides.
In the summer you can watch avocets and marsh harriers
or hear booming bitterns. On the beach, a special area
is cordoned off to protect nesting little terns.
In the autumn and winter many wading birds and waterfowl visit the reserve. You can find out more about the reserve and its wildlife, browse in the shop or enjoy a meal in the licensed tearoom at the visitor centre, which features Going Solar photovoltaic cells. There is a programme of events throughout the year, including special events for children and those new to birdwatching.
