For birdwatchers, autumn is among the most thrilling times of the year in Norfolk. All along our coast there can be huge falls of common migrants such as redstarts, pied flycatchers and willow warblers. With them there may be scarce migrants such as red-breasted flycatchers and bluethroats or even extreme rarities from the Siberian Far East.

Meanwhile in every habitat in the county, from woods to dunes and from meadows to marshes, now is the time to get to grips with fungi, especially in years which have experienced a damp late summer or autumn.
