Another beautiful day sunshine and no wind. 23 people met in the reserve car park and Will Wes , the warden, kindly gave up his morning to show us round this delightful area.

We had some sightings of swallowtails which were among the best I have had this year and there were plenty of them. The dragonflies and damselflies were also amazing.

Four of the group had never seen a swallowtail so they were especially delighted with the photo opportunities.

It was a very interesting site and we were all very grateful to Will for giving us this chance to visit a Norfolk gem.
