The Spring Flowers of Weeting Heath

12th May 2019

Time TBA

A guided walk led by James Symmonds of Norfolk Wildlife Trust

Following on from our excellent walk round this reserve in mid-July 2018, James, a highly knowledgeable naturalist, will guide us round sections of this NWT reserve not normally open to the public.

Weeting Heath is famous for breeding stone curlews, and is one of the very finest remaining Breckland heaths and home to the rare Spiked Speedwell, Spanish Catchfly and Maiden Pink.

This walk will give us the chance to see a wealth of spring flowers, including Breckland specialities such as the Breckland and Spring Speedwells and Purple-stemmed Cat’s Tail. Common Blue and Holly Blue butterflies may be on the wing, and we may catch a glimpse of stone curlews.

Please book in advance. Members £5, non-members £8.
Refreshments can be bought at the NWT visitor centre before and after the walk.
