Focussing on the specialist species, changing habitats and amazing breeding successes of the North Norfolk coast, this event will be a chance for the whole family to engage with the wild, learn from conservation and wildlife specialists and explore the reserve at first-hand.

Help us identify some of the magnificent moths that have been attracted, in the dead of night, to our moth traps. Find out where they hide up during the day and marvel at their spectacular larvae.
Thursday 28th and Friday
Learn about the amazing lifecycle of dragonflies and be amazed at their carnivorous ferocity, deep in the depths of your local pond.
