Spring is a great time to see birds in action, and a time to start thinking seriously about the garden for another year.

You can do both tomorrow with a visit to Shorelands Wildlife Gardens, and the adjoining Blacksmiths Cottage Nursery, from 10am-5pm.

Shorelands is reopening for the year tomorrow, where it has been a busy winter for staff. Now that spring is here. they have cranes and storks sitting on nests and visitors will be able to see a variety of new species including Indian painted storks and the critically endangered white-winged wood ducks.

Run by Ben and Sarah Potterton, visitors can ask questions about some of the gardens’ inhabitants , like Harry, the baby hammerkop - also known as a lightning bird.

Blacksmiths is holding a spring plant sale, featuring visiting nurseries.

Shorelands and Blacksmiths are in Langmere, near Dickleburgh. Follow the signs from Dickleburgh.
