Norfolk for Waders...

Visited Norfolk with Adam and his Dad this week, our local patches are beginning to dry up a bit as birds are moving around, it should pick up again as winter approaches but for now we wanted some close encounters with waders and Norfolk is close by, easy to navigate and can always guarantee birds! Most of these images were taken on the shingle at Snettisham RSPB with a few at Titchwell RSPB. We were lucky with a nice sunny morning and a high tide of 7.2, unfortunately the optimum time is to arrive an hour before high tide to see all the waders moving and swirling around but an hour before high tide was 6am and was still dark! Ah well! Enjoy the images!
