My son, Paul had come to stay with us in March, Cambridgeshire. He lives in the southern suburbs of London. Therefore, he seems to be very taken by the wide open spaces of the Fenland. Carole and I told him of the A148 road that goes along the Norfolk coastline by the wash. It has some great sandy beaches, fine woodland and fields that have quaint little stone cottages nestle within.
There is a multitude of wildlife and other wonderful things to see. At one point we stopped at Holkham where the drive goes down towards the beach. There is a line of conifer trees with a bridal path behind the open marshland. We told Paul of the bird hide here, where we often look out at the Marsh Harriers hunting.
As we got out of the car one such raptor made an appearance as though on request. I started clicking away with my camera.
