This small island in the River Ore is famous for its breeding avocets and terns, which can usually be seen during spring and summer. In autumn and winter, the island provides a haven for large numbers of ducks and wading birds. Havergate is also a great place to see brown hares at close range.
Access is by boat only and the boat trip to the island helps you really feel you're getting away from it all. Pre-booking is essential – please contact the RSPB Minsmere nature reserve on 01728 648281. Boats leave Orford Quay at 10 am on first Saturday of every month (maximum 12 people).
