Sunset at Snettisham

Earlier this week I looked after three journalists visiting some of Norfolk's
most important bird watching locations - part of my role working for
Norfolk Tourism www.visitnorfolk.co.uk.

We witnessed the RSPB Snettisham www.rspb.org.uk/reserves wader spectacular - thousands of waders roosting in a lagoon close to The Wash, pushed there by the high tide. It was a truly memorable experience and we were lucky to be treated to a wonderful sunset over The Wash.

We also explored The Wildfowl and Wetland Trust's Welney Nature Reserve www.wwt.org.uk/welney, a magical location on the Ouse Washes and Pensthorpe Nature Reserve www.pensthorpe.com, the current home of BBC Springwatch. The landrover Wensum Discovery Tour was superb and is the best way to get behind the scenes of these beautiful reserve
