Part of one of the RSPB’s most popular nature reserves is to be sacrificed to the sea – in order to protect the rest of the site from destruction, the conservation charity said today. Visited by around 90,000 people a year, Titchwell Marsh on the north Norfolk coast offers birdwatchers excellent opportunities to see birds at close range and is home to rare species including bitterns, bearded tits and marsh harriers.
