Cley Marshes, Norfolk

On our way from Hickling to Holt we stopped at Cookies Crab Shop in Salthouse for a crab sarny, then onto the Cley cafe for a cup of coffee and a delicious brownie. At Cley Marshes, we saw Marsh Harrier, Avocets, Green Sandpiper, Bearded Reedling (nowhere near as obliging as those at Hickling Broad), and the reeds were full of nesting Warbler and Reed Bunting.

We only had the briefest of visits as we were on our way to check in with the lovely Viv at Willow House B&B in Holt, which we can highly recommend.

Here are a few more pics taken on our wander round the boardwalk.


  1. Great Avocet flight shot Linda. I will have to visit Norfolk again soon if not for the birds then to sample the brownies!

  2. Lovely photos again Linda. Cley Marshes looks a superb place to visit. The crab sarny and brownies are making me feel hungry!

  3. That's a great angle on an Avocet! An interesting landscape, too. I hear the birds among the reeds but rarely see them.

  4. Hello Jason, I was lucky to see the avocets fly overhead & managed to capture a couple of frames. Lovely birds. I can highly receommend the brownies, in fact all of the cakes in the cafe looked good & I'm in no doubt that had we stayed for longer, we would have worked our way through the cake menu!

    Hello Caroline, yes a snack stop is such an important part of any visit don't you think.

    Hello Rob, thank you, I was pleased to get a good view of the Avocet, Ive never managed to see one fly overhead before.

    Thanks for visiting , Linda
