To get to Snettisham reserve you have to walk through the fishing lakes and along the river to the shingle beach and the lagoons. Here I saw my first Cuckoo! To quick to get a shot of, but we also saw lots of other amazing wildlife a grazing Hare and a couple of Seals!
The following pictures were taken at Snettisham.

The following pictures were taken at Cley Marshes. Here we managed to see a bird neither of us have been lucky enough to see before, the Spoon Bill! But sadly they spent all there time sleeping and all I have is one very far of image of them asleep! We also saw a Peregrine, Marsh Harriers, Green Shank, Herons, plenty of Wood Pigeon (the bane of my birding life - that goes for all common Pigeons!) Lapwings and Avocet.
