Titchwell in the September sun

Tuesday, September 11, 2018

On Sunday we found ourselves destined for the North Norfolk Coast, somewhere that we rarely visit any more. A family meal was on the agenda at Briarfields which was delightful (go for the roast beef for the most divine, melt in the mouth meat!) and as the clouds blew away it made for the perfect opportunity to stroll off a token amount of food consumed. From the hotel we could see the sea and it was that direction in which we set off.
As the grassy track became more wild the couple of dragonflies hovering around became more and more until I realised I'd never seen so many in one place. Enthralling but of course infuriating as a photography enthusiast; the nanosecond for which they land is never long enough to snap a good shot. I managed a few. 

It's a birdwatcher's paradise, Titchwell. With my compact little camera and prime lens it would have been clear that I wasn't there on an avian hunt. This buzzard caught my eye.

Mushrooms and wild grasses.

Why have all the trees died?

Little bit of fleabane.
Ans teasel.

Boardwalks through wilderness.
Wild carrot?
Take care,

  1. I started working atTitchwellas reserves manager in 1988 I used to sleep on the West Bank in summer to protect Avocets and marsh harriers from egg thieves! ;-) the trees died when water levels were raised in the early 80’s when RSPB bought the land it was a disasterous sugar beet crop! But the trees were left standing cos of all the invertebrates they hold The site is so important now. Glad you liked it

  2. It looks a gorgeous place to visit. We recently stalked some dragonflies trying to capture that elusive, perfect photo.

  3. Sounds like me trying to capture the bees on film when I visited a lavender farm. If only they would stay still for a fraction of a second longer....
