Mellow moments.

After a visit to the Norfolk coast at the end of September I collected a few ideas and sketches of some of the birds I saw and came up with these watercolour impressions. It was an interesting weekend for a number of reasons not the least of which was the open day at Holme bird observatory where we watched a ringing demonstration and the emptying of a moth trap! Cley was the highlight for me and to see seven spoonbills flying around in procession over the reserve was quite magical! Wader spectacular at Snettisham and dancing Cranes at Welney are just some of the scenes that make Norfolk so brilliant for birding! Can't wait for my next visit!
