Now that our "Indian" summer has been and gone and the children are back to…
There is no better time than now to see wildlife in Norfolk especially if you enjoy birdwatching. Of course, there is plenty of other wildlife for you to have a sneaky peek at and Hall Farm Cottages in Norfolk are going to share with you a few Norfolk wildlife favourites.
- Whooper and Bewick Swans. Norfolk is like paradise for these stunning swans. The Whooper swans fly from Iceland and the Bewick swans travel from Siberia across Europe. If you love this royal animal, you should head down to Westlands Wildlife Trust Welney, you’re guaranteed to see a few them gliding gracefully across the waters.
- Pink Footed Geese. If you fancy seeing the pink footed geese then pop down to the RSPB Snettisham. They migrate during dusk and dawn, and you can catch them moving their roosts on the mudflats of The Wash inland to feed on the fields, before making their grand return at night.
- Grey seal pups. They are simply irresistible! To catch a glimpse of these gorgeous grey seal pups, get yourself down to Blakeney Point to see these adorable creatures and its peak season for them too. The mums will come ashore to have their pups and they will welcome you with open arms.
- Red deer. It’s the perfect time of the year to spot these incredible red deers and during your stay at Hall Farm Cottages, you might be lucky enough to spot a deer on the farm next to us. You can also venture down to Holkham for a guided walk at this historical stately home. Or you can visit the 18th century Gunton Park where you will be greeted by the deer sanctuary of the Gunton Arms.
There are so many exciting and incredible wildlife famous faces that can be spotted around Norfolk, which is just another reason why you should stay at Hall Farm Cottages in Norfolk to spot these fabulous animals in all their glory.
