Breydon Water at Great Yarmouth in the east of Norfolk is a large stretch of sheltered estuary . It is at the gateway to the Broads river system on the eastern edge of Halvergate Marshes.
Breydon Water is the UK’s largest protected wetland and in places it is 1.5km wide and is 5 km long. During the winter months tens of thousands of wintering ducks, geese and swans that visit the estuary and surrounding marshes. At low tide you can see some old boat ruins on the south breydon flats and when the water is calm get some amazing reflections of the sky during the day and at sunset.
This collection of photos was taken in late November and mid-December at sunset during a few partially cloudy days.
