Could anyone explain where the birds are being seen at 'Potter Heigham Marshes'. And also where the best place to park is.
Thanks, Tom

They're southeast of Potter Heigham. Basically the area that the birds are being reported from is in the 'fields' to the east of High's Mill, up as far as the Candle Dyke going south from Heigham Sound to the River Thurne. The Weaver's Way around about 52.715736, 1.604408 should give good views over the pools.

When I was there the other day we parked by the church in Potter Heigham, though parking is quite limited there. Others may be able to recommend better places or alternatives.

There's is a large car park in Potter Heigham opposite Latham's shop. From there it is a 15-20 minute walk along the river to the marshes.

Is the cost of 8.50 per day quoted on the bird info services correct?

For shoppers using the car-park to go shopping yes (as it is intended)... Free parking for other activities I'm not so sure about.

Parking at the village hall would be a better option (as birdguides were advising all weekend )
