The event is free, but there is a small reserve entrance fee of £5.00 per person (£4.50 exc. Gift Aid) for those who aren't members of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, which will allow you to enjoy the reserve at your leisure. The reserve is open between 10.00am and 5.00pm, and there is a café on site.

Cley holds a wide range of breeding wetland birds, including Marsh Harrier, Bearded Tit and Avocet and is also an excellent locality for migrant waders. Little Stint, Spotted Redshank, Greenshank, Ruff, Black-tailed Godwit and Curlew Sandpiper are all spring regulars, while Garganey, Little Gull, Spoonbill and Great White Egret are becoming more frequent. Cley is also a magnet for migrating passerines with the surrounding scrub and wet fields regularly holding migrants as well as the odd rarity.
