Wader Spectacular at Snettisham RSPB

In contrast to Wednesday, yesterday was a beautiful day on the North Norfolk coast. We started the day with the Wader Spectacular at Snettisham. As it was a high Spring tide, the waders get forced of the mud in twirling clouds. The bands of different waders are intriguing as are the shapes that the masses of Knot, Dunlin, Black-tailed Godwits etc made  - it appeared at one stage as a huge bird that gracefully took to the sky. Eventually when the mud is submerged they travel over the heads of watching birdwatchers and land on small islands in the gravel pits behind the sea wall. The light was too contrasty in that direction for much photography so we returned along the shore viewing various waders en route (another entry!)
