Dawn on Friday found me at RSPB Snettisham on the North Norfolk coast to see the wonderful wader spectacular. A high, gently rising tide drove thousands of Knots, Oystercatchers and other waders from the Wash mudflats where they feed, sending them in huge, swirling clouds across the sky and onto the beaches of the saline lagoons set back from shoreline. The experience lived up to its billing and whetted the apetite to make regular winter visits to this remote and special landscape.
I’ll leave the film and pictures to speak for themselves. For better viewing, click here to watch on YouTube.
