This is a notice to all our members and visitors that the Norfolk Wildlife Trust have now completed essential repair work, making access easier for all. Thankyou for your co-operation during the temporary closure last month.

Please be aware that repairs to the coastal footpath at Holme have been delayed and are currently scheduled to begin late in August. This may affect access to the Observatory. We will give further information when received, via the NOA blog and website.

Thankyou for your patience.

COVID-19 Safety on our Reserves

NOA would like to thank all visitors for their responsible behaviour throughout the pandemic and hope they will continue to act responsibly. Should the situation change in the future then we may need to re-impose restrictions, though we hope that this won't be necessary. For the time being the Observatory building and ringing lab access restrictions will stay the same, with entry for staff only. Full use of our hides is now restored.


Our Christmas Eve Birdwatch was another success with 105 species seen on the day! Read the full trip report here. You can still donate to the birdwatch at click here or email your pledge to us at THANK YOU!
