Along the Norfolk Coast

It’s a good day for a walk in mid September, in the middle of an Indian summer with temperatures in the mid  to upper 20’s. We decided to head out for the day along the north Norfolk coast. First stop a visit in the morning to  Holkham Hall and a walk around the lake. At…


Redshanks vs Spotted Redshanks

Redshanks are a common wader found, year-round, on the marshes of the north Norfolk coast. At any time of year, on a visit to  RSPB Titchwell, Snettisham or the NWT Holme Dunes you often see redshanks probing their bills into the mud for insects, worms, and crustaceans.

RSPB Titchwell Marsh in Summer

A Day at Titchwell Marsh This year we’d had a long period of summer days that started with great lighting for photography but quickly deteriorated into poor flat light.

Norfolk’s secret Common Seal Colony

The private life of the Dunnock.

Early Spring at the RSPB Titchwell Reserve

After a what seemed a very long winter unable to venture too far from home it was great to be able to walk out to the beach at the RSPB Titchwell reserve and take in the early spring sun and the reserves wildlife getting ready for the breeding season. Plus the opportunity to get to…


Kingfishers at Titchwell RSPB reserve

After many, NO dozens of visits to the Fen hide at Titchwell and enviously looking at the days sightings board only to see that earlier in the day kingfishers had made an appearance. I finally managed to visit on a day when one was allegedly making regular visits, so there was at last a chance of…


Fallow Deer

Early September, and although the day started a bit misty on the coast, there was the promise of some pleasant sunshine in the forecast. We decided to head out for the Holkham area to look at the possibility of getting some shots of fallow deer. With allegedly more deer in the UK now than in…
