Recent pics from recent travels

Hi all ..remember me!!

Haven't posted much in the way of interest on here for a while, mostly because of various reasons I haven't been doing much in the way of local birding walks etc.

However, at the beginning of the summer I started taking myself to the North Norfolk coastline, am area often acknowledged as a birders and walkers paradise! bit of an effort to get there from the other side of the county on public transport but so far I have visited most of the better known birding hotspots and explored some of the backwaters in between.

I'll not go into detail as to which birds I have seen as to be honest my main interest is walking, exploring and doing my best to capture something of the area through photography ..birding is still very much part of the day but is much more ''less serious'' these days (sometimes I just like to sit on the beach and gaze out to sea!!)

Thought I'd share some pics with you of the different places I have been exploring throughout the last few months...

Matt

They are stunning pictures, Matt. As you know from elsewhere, I'm a sucker for cloud pictures, and those on here are spectacular.

I'm in total agreement with you sentiment about walking, exploring and capturing the area through photography. If a few birds come along, then that's just great, but it's rarely the main purpose of any of my trips. I'm another one who can happily sit and watch the sea. Sometimes I wish that I lived a tad closer than I do.....but there you go.

Very nice pics, Matt, and I am right there with you on the sitting gazing out to sea idea.

Hi Matt,

Ah that lot brings back some happy memories of late Spring holidays along that coast. I've had 33 Lifers along there (so far) and 17 of those unique sightings.

But I agree that part of the pleasure is just strolling around the countryside, there's so much varied habitat and it's not as flat as you'd think. That's an especially lovely bit from the Wells carpark and along towards Holkham, and the lane down opposite Holkham Hall, the birds are almost (but not quite) a bonus.

Trust you to photograph a Lizard at Cley! What's the matter, got bored with the hundreds or so birds? (chuckle). Still, one up on me, I don't recall seeing one.

Bill.

A complete fluke find!!

It was happy even happy to remain sunning itself despite me pushing my camera 8 inches in it's face to get a macro shot!!

Just accured to me that some of the pics have already been uploaded eslewhere on the forum, I will upload some more with a brief report as I get them.

Thanks for the coments all

Matt
