It was not a birding trip but more of a break from the hustle and bustle! Staying in Wells-Next-the-Sea gave us easy access to the towns along the coast covered by the coastal hopper- bus that runs “regularly” from town to town along the coast. 😛
The holiday mood was in full swing in Wells-Next-The-Sea and around with carnivals, fairs and parades happening nearly everyday in August! There were lots to eat, lots to do and of course lots to see. For one, the marshlands and open skies were incredibly breathtaking. Some of our walks through the open fields and a visit to Titchwell Nature Reserve gave us awesome views of birds in the area.
Walking highlights include:
Walk from Wells-Next-The-Sea to Holkam Park and back- 6 miles
Titchwell Nature Reserve
Walk from Burnam Deepdale to Burnam Oviary – 3 miles
Walk from Wells-Next-The-Sea to Holkam Beach – 3 miles
My lifers include :
Greater Black-backed gull
Pink footed goose!
If you are lucky, you could spot three kinds of deer in Holkam park and estate!
And here’s some landscape photos of this wonderful coastal area and the lazy seals at Blakney point!
