A Wash in Norfolk

By Linda Tancs

In Snettisham, England, a nature reserve is bordered by The Wash, one of the most important bird estuaries in the United Kingdom.  Two of the most spectacular wildlife spectacles in the nation occur here.  One is a winter event when thousands of pinkfooted geese fly from their overnight roosts inland to feed.  The other event can occur anytime upon a particularly high tide, forcing tens of thousands of knot, oystercatchers, sanderlings, godwit and plover to flee their feeding grounds.  The reserve is clearly signposted; just twelve miles from Kings Lynn, you can pick up regular bus service from there.
