We start our Journey from the historic City of Norwich which in its self has many good areas to to take a lazy stroll in search of the feathered friends.
This is located on the west side of Norwich with access either from a layby on the left side of the B1108 Earlham Road or park at the end of Bridge Farm Lane. The flash runs beside the River Yare and is a pleasant spot to visit. The river is fairly clean and you may be lucky to see a passing Kingfisher and in summer Common Tern often fly up and down the river in search of small fish.
The flash also attracts a variety of Gulls and wildfowl including Egyptian Geese and Mallard and Grey Heron can often be seen waiting patiently for a meal. The odd wader passes through the site with Wood Sandpiper being recorded there recently in spring. The wetland habitat attracts Sedge and Reed Warbler and the surrounding woodland attracts a variety of songbirds including Blackcap and Whitethroat.
