The Wader Spectacular at RSPB Snettisham is one of the highlights on the birding calendar, where thousands of wading birds take flight as the tide pushes them off the mudflats. This event does not happen everyday, so for passionate birdwatchers make sure you keep an eye on Snettisham Dates and Times Guide.


This is the place to witness two of the UK’s great wildlife spectacles. On big tides, as water covers the vast mudflats of The Wash, tens of thousands of wading birds are pushed off their feeding grounds and onto the roost banks and islands in front of the RSPB hides.

In the middle of winter, a dawn or dusk visit may reward you with the sight of thousands of pinkfooted geese flying from their overnight roots inland to feed. Large numbers of common terns and black-headed gulls nest on the reserve in summer, when there is a spectacular display of shingle flowers.
