Winter in the Bure Valley, and the biting wind cuts in from the east, bringing with it a blast of Siberia. Despite the cold though, there’s a remarkable amount of activity.
Out on the open water, large flocks of ducks have gathered, feeding busily, undisturbed by people on the sheltered parts of Ranworth
and other Broads: mallard, gadwall, pochard, tufted duck and shoveler. Great crested grebes, now sport their plainer winter plumage, but are still an elegant sight.
