Horsey birds and wildlife

Horsey Mere can be found on the eastern edge of the Norfolk Broads.

Covering an area of nearly 2000 acres, the landscape includes sand dunes along the coastal edge through maritime fen, grazing marsh and arable farmland, travelling along to the open water of the mere itself and its surrounding reedbeds.

The Upper Thurne Broads within northern Broadland have long been recognised as an internationally important area for ducks and geese. Large flocks spend the winter on the open water of Hickling Broad, Horsey Mere and Martham Broads where they feed and roost. At times the Upper Thurne Broads can support up to ten thousand waterfowl.

In summer the mere has breeding, reed warbler, bearded tit, bittern and marsh harrier, but it is in winter that Horsey comes into it's own, as all boating and fishing is curtailed between 1st November and 1st March, allowing thousands of ducks and geese safe refuge.
