Watch the Birdie

On the Saturday morning we headed along the coast to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust bird reserve at Cley.  There were more twitchers than feathered specimens (at least, within photography distance) and a couple of the hides were like Piccadilly Circus. 

The reeds were impressive in IR against a brooding Norfolk sky.


Although we saw several bird species (at a distance!) the only one which performed for us was a rather fine Tufted Duck.


There's always a Mute Swan who is prepared to pose, of course, and Cley was no exception.
