Blakeney Conservation Area Duck Pond
Set up by the Blakeney Wildfowlers Association in 1977 to commemorate the Silver Anniversary of The Queen’s Coronation. The duck pond in Blakeney, Norfolk is now looked after by volunteers. The pond was destroyed and many ducks and geese lost in the December 2013 storm surge. Following the repair of the sea wall that protects the duck pond it was restored and restocked in 2015. Since then, with donations from supporters and local businesses, we have been adding to the species of ducks and geese present. Typically the duck pond is home to over 40 pairs of ducks and geese.
