Views Along The Norfolk Coast

Cley Windmill in North Norfolk

On Sunday, my husband and I headed to Wells-Next-The-Sea, which was bright and sunny with a bracing wind. The tide was out and lots of birds were probing the sand and mud for their breakfast.

Curlews, redshank, oystercatchers, and seven egrets were all on parade. We then moved further along the coast to Cley marshes and ended our afternoon in the visitors centre for tea and a scrummy slice of cake.

If you have never been, it is well worth a visit, the visitors centre looks out across the reserve to the sea and the staff are always willing to tell you what birds to look out for and which hide to visit to get the best views of them.

The shop area has a good range of bird and wildlife books, together with gifts to suite all pockets. Last but not least is the tea shop that serves tasty hot and cold snacks and wonderful cakes that you can enjoy while gazing at one of my favourite views in Norfolk.
