Titchwell's BIG Weekend

This is Titchwell's BIG Weekend: Two days of epic birdwatching, featuring events, talks and walks from big birdwatching brands.

Are you looking to elevate your birding experience? We've got Big Brands together with Big Experts in one location, offering great advice, top ID tips and try before you buy on optical equipment to help you on your birdwatching journey. 

On Saturday, we're being joined by BBC Countryfile's Steve Brown. As well as officially opening the event, Steve will be birding the reserve all day and joining us for an initmate Q&A session in the afternoon. Book onto our "In Conversation With... Steve Brown" by clicking here.

With something for all nature lovers, we'll also be running children's activities, a Moth Morning and a Bird Race (with prizes!) to get stuck into.

The fun starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm each day. Come for one or both days, the entry fee is applicable each day (RSPB Members FREE). See below for programme, entry and location details.
