An enchanting Norfolk evening

It was such a glorious Norfolk evening I couldn't wait to down tools in the office and take the 10-minute drive to the coast. And I was rewarded with some wonderful hours of unforgettable sights and sounds. In the 90 minutes or so I spent on the Cley salt marshes, I watched several Marsh Harriers quartering over the reed beds – while another gathered twigs for its nest – numerous geese flying in to find somewhere to spend the night, several Grey Herons returning to their tree-top roosts, countless duck coming in low overhead, and a Little Egret – branch in its beak – doing some last-minute housekeeping. Now I should stress I'm not accomplished enough to have captured all of those moments on camera (frankly, sometimes it's as nice just to sit and watch) but more posts will follow over the coming few days. In the meantime, I thought I'd share some shots that go some way towards illustrating just what an enchanting evening it was and what a beautiful place the Norfolk salt marshes are…
