Listen out for the booming call of one of the UK’s rarest birds

Aldeburgh, Suffolk

Spot some of Springwatch’s wildlife stars, including the famously elusive bittern, before the BBC programme returns to RSPB Minsmere in Suffolk.

Suffolk’s Heritage Coast has long been popular with birdwatchers. Its salty marshes, heaths and wetlands boast a rich variety of bird species, with over 400 identified in the area.

From bitterns to nightingales, tawny owls to badgers and avocets to otters, RSPB Minsmere is home to many curious critters. Spring is a great time to see and hear them at their best and enjoy some guided nature walks with the RSPB’s passionate volunteers.

The sea-facing White Lion and its sister hotel, the Brudenell at Aldeburgh, are offering spring Minsmere Breaks to coincide with Springwatch’s return in May 2015. The reserve is just over 15 minutes’ drive from the hotels or a pleasant 2.5-hour coastal walk.

The White Lion offers relaxed brasserie-style dining while the Brudenell offers some seriously gourmet food and wine in its Seafood & Grill. It’s also located just steps away from the beach with uninterrupted seaside views.
