In my opinion as a non-bias scotsman, Cley Marshes gets the nod! I had the pleasure of visiting both Titchwell and Cley back in May and I was spoiled for choice. I found that Cley had a better variety of species hence the reason for my vote. At one point I had a Collared Pratincole flying 10 feet past my face and a Little Egret about 6 feet in font of me wading through a pool. As I was walking to the hide, I had 2 Spoonbills flying over my head and a flock of Bearded Tits flicking through the reeds beside me. On my other side, I had several Reed Warblers, a calling Cetti's Warbler and a couple of hovering Marsh Harriers.
There are far too many species to name but every direction I seemed to look in, I had a differant species of bird. Then to top things off, we had a Barn owl sitting on a post as we left the reserve.
