Birdwatching at Dunwich Heath

Dunwich Heath is a wonderful place for birdwatching

Dunwich Heath is home to rare birds, many of which nest on the ground so during breeding season (1 March – 31 August) we ask all visitors to follow these rules

  • Stay on the footpaths at all times
  • Dogs on leads on the heath – the beach and farm are lead free zones
  • Not to linger in one spot for too long as this may prevent birds incubating eggs or feeding chicks
  • Do not use equipment to play bird song; this increases predator success
