We work closely with our neighbours the Norfolk Ornithologists' Association at Holme Bird Observatory. They monitor the bird and wildlife at Drove Orchards and help us manage the area.
Sophie Barker, warden of the Norfolk Ornithologists’ Association based at Holme Bird Observatory wrote at the beginning of March:
‘Frenzy on the Marsh – the grazing marsh was a real spectacle this week, with many hundreds of Pink-feet, Brent Geese, Wigeon, Lapwings, Curlews and Starlings. Today they were joined mid-morning by over 400 Golden Plover. No wonder the grass looks alive!’
