Strumpshaw Fen

Low Rd Near Brundall NR13 4HS 01603 715 191

We say

Just across the railway line from a carpark on the edge of Strumpshaw village, Strumpshaw Fen is one of the most popular RSPB reserves in Norfolk. a glorious spot where you can see sandpipers, marsh harriers, kingfishers and lots and lots of butterflies and moths, including the Broads’ own swallowtail. There are several well-maintained trails that take you through a variety of habitats – woodland, meadows and reedy fenland, all viewable from various hides, one at reception, and two others around the reserve, and it’s worth taking the path through the woods and then along the river into the fenland area to get the full flavour of the place. There are regular activities for children too – bug hunts,  butterfly trails and night-time bat-spotting walks.

A lovely family walk ★★★★☆

A lovely family walk through woods, reed beds and along the riverbank. We didn't see many birds on our visit but lots of pretty snowdrops in the woods...
