23rd August - Come on a coach trip to Minsmere for a great day's birding!

This well-known location is the RSPB's flagship reserve on the Suffolk coast and a very popular destination for our Group.

There's a wide range of habitats, including extensive reedbeds, lagoons, woodland, heathland and seashore. On the nature trail there are a number of hides overlooking these different habitats where there is a good chance of seeing bittern, as well as waders, marsh harrier and bearded tits. At this time of year the reserve is also very good for a variety of species of butterfly and dragonfly.

The large visitor's centre has an RSPB shop, tearoom and toilets. Please note that there is an admission charge for non RSPB members.

If you would like to find out more about this reserve you will find information at:

Time: 8 am

Price: £18 for paid-up Central London Local Group members and £20 for non Group members

    We saw 88 bird species on this trip, which is pretty good going. Highlights seen by most people included Great white egret, Yellow wagtails, Spotted redshanks and Snipe. A few people were lucky enough to see an otter. The coach was full, with 53 of us on board.

    Hi everyone. The coach is now full, so those who have not contacted me to book and pay for a seat have unfortunately missed out. We run coach trips to great birding locations almost every month so look out for our next trip here on Meetup which will be to Titchwell in September. For those who really want to go to Minsmere, we'll be going back there in February next year.
