Sunday Picture Post: Too Hot To Travel

Forecast for 22nd June is hot hot hot. We decide NOT to take buses but to stay local. A walk alongside Breydon Water and back along Angles Way which here runs between grazing marsh and villages. So, bring plenty of water, and let’s go…

Here at the back of the town, the Bure joins Breydon Water, itself Β the confluence of rivers Yare and Waveney, to flow out to the North Sea

Wayward seeds take root and flourish in the sloping banks of Breydon Water

Green and red navigation poles, best not ignored. At least one pleasure cruiser per season goes astray to get stuck on the mud with the ebbing tide

Ahead lies the confluence: River Yare to the right, Waveney to the left, but we’re not walking that far today

Sloping banks give way to a fringing of saltmarsh…

The ebbing tide reveals the mud, rich feeding grounds for migrant birds in their season…

And in summer the ducks bring their fluffy ducklings here to feed and to play

Meanwhile to our left reeds along the drainage channels provide nesting sites and cover for sedge and reed warblers, reed buntings and various waterfowl…all of whom keep a low profile with us humans about

The swan is big enough and fierce enough not to need hiding!

The pump house controls the water levels in the maze of channels that keep the marshes dry for grazing

I’m delighted to see we have cattle again. They’ve been absent over past years, their pastures taken with horses

22nd June 2022

And speaking of which…

22nd June 2022

We’re now on a track that’ll take us to Angles Way and the trek back. Seems a good place to stop for today. We’ll pick up where we’ve stopped next week.

Hope you’ve enjoyed our water-side walk
