A spring sunset stroll

magical spring walk in norfolk countryside
 Last weekend we took an evening stroll at sunset to savour every moment of a wonderful weekend. It was well worth turning out for; I'll admit, I was knackered after a tough 5k and pending a hearty meal I was sorely tempted to call it off and stay indoors to flop on the sofa. However, the warm weather and astonishingly beautiful sunset made a magical backdrop to a hour's stroll.

 We saw some priceless sights which I will hold close to my heart for quite some time. The teasel and bunnies hopping along the bank.... A flock of birds overhead (there must have been hundreds or thousands, an awful lot anyway).

Newly delivered (into the field) sheep were curious and nosy.
I stumbled across  a fairytale cluster of mushrooms.

 We spotted some beautiful little willow buds which look so cute and fluffy. It's not something I have seen many of so I'm making the most of cooing over them. Awwww!

 A barn owl hunted the fields, or so we thought.

Not one, not two, but three barn owls were hunting the fields and to see three in eyeshot was amazing. They didn't mind one another at all; just going about their own business in an efficient and haunting manner. That moment will be treasured forever.

 Two geese or ducks, but maybe geese.

It just goes to show that you should never turn down a wander. Who knows what you may see...
