Norfolk Coast in Autumn

Swirling knots and deserted beaches    October is a wonderful time of year to explore the Norfolk coast. During my short break here I travelled from Snettisham on the west side of Norfolk, up and around to Holt just below the north coast. Most of the time the weather was kind, just one rain day and we still ventured out, in the right clothes of course! The main attraction was the hope of seeing one of wildlife's great seasonal spectacles, one that the RSPB calls the 'wirling wader spectacle'. This happens on some of the biggest high tides (spring tides) that occur at this time of year. The sea rushes in at speed over the mudflats of The Wash and thousands of wading birds are forced into the air, swirling and flowing in great flocks further inland to the saline lagoons where they wait for the tide to turn. The RSPB reserve at Snettisham is the perfect spot to watch this take place. Whirling waders at Snettisham There are different parts to this event. On the morning we visit
