More Information...

Part of the Hickling Living Landscape, NWT Martham Broad is a fantastic place to visit, with a wide variety of wildlife. The site actually comprises two shallow Broads bisected by the navigable River Thurne, as well as surrounding fen, reedbed and marsh. The reserve holds breeding birds including bittern, bearded tit, common tern, Cetti’s warbler and marsh harrier. Stately common cranes use the reserve and can be seen flying over. The site is excellent for swallowtails and many other invertebrates in summer, including Norfolk hawker. Otters are present and Chinese water deer are relatively easily observed. Several bat species occur. Good numbers of wintering wildfowl  frequent the Broad and surrounding fields. Hen harrier and merlin are also possible in the winter months, and barn owl is often seen.
