Jono Forgham – Birds of the North Norfolk Coastal Path


The very entertaining Jono is returning for the third time to the club with a talk on the North Norfolk coast, somewhere most of us have been to.

He has completed this 47 mile wander on 3 occasions. It begins at Hunstanton and concludes on the pier at Cromer. The last time he completed this it was the final part of a fundraising walk for a centre in Sri Lanka. On this occasion Jono began the walk from his front door in East Herts and joined up with the coastal footpath after 105 miles of wandering over 6 days. This was in October 2019.
The footpath covers most of the good bird habitats along the coastline, but veers inland after Holme Next The Sea and returns to the coastal marshes at Brancaster. Therefore, an extra few miles will be added for those who may wish to visit RSPB Titchwell.
In 2011 he completed the walk in the usual 3 days, spotting 99 species of birds.
As well as looking at the birds, Jono will advise on accommodation, places to eat and drink and how to get the most out of the local bus route if staying at one place for the duration of the walk.
