Norfolk Coast Dark Skies Festival Walk

Norfolk Coast Dark Skies Festival Walk

Tuesday 17th October 2023 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

RSPB Titchwell Marsh Nature Reserve
Titchwell, Hunstanton, Norfolk, PE31 8BB

Join the Norfolk Coast Partnership for a magical night on the marsh and discover the beauty of Titchwell’s dark skies and wildlife.

You’ll experience the sights and sounds of nature as some species settle down for the night and others awake. During our walk we’ll aim to encounter the small animals and insects that whizz around the reserve as darkness falls.

You’ll listen out for the calls of hunting raptors and using mobile bat detectors, search for pipistrelle and Daubenton’s bats hawking for prey in the twilight. Before the evening is over you can see who has dropped into our light traps – perhaps you’ll spot a rare moth or two.

This is a free event, and is part of the Norfolk Coast Dark Skies Festival 2023.

Please note that this has already taken place on 17/10/2023

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
