19th June 2018 – Blakeney and Cley Next The Sea

Another wonderful day round and about Blakeney in North Norfolk. Not so many birds photos today but lots of walking until the sun set.

We walked on a circuitous route through the Blakeney Marshes to Wiverton Hall where we met the legendary colourful character Desmond McCarthy from the television series “Normal in Norfolk” which I include here, in my nature blog, as we had an engaging conversation about hunting and country life.

We also had a visit to the NWT Cley Reserve late in the afternoon – was it for the tea and cake or the hides? I would have to say that the cake was certainly better than the reserve today although we did see a ruff and a hobby.
