Nature lovers’ ramble for the last weekend of the holidays…?

With just a few days of holiday left – hopefully at least some of them sunny and warm – we can’t resist sharing a post from the Hethersett Birding blog.  If you haven’t discovered the little Ladybelt Country Park (on Hethersett road just beyond Ketteringham towards East Carleton), it is well worth a look. Perfect for a gentle family stroll, with or without a four-legged friend and definitely with your camera!  Click the picture below to read the post and see some great bird pictures the author has taken there.
