12th – 13th June

 After returning back home from Lydd, I had to get on the R1200 GS and ride all the way to Stalham in the Norfolk Broads to meet Fuzz.

Our challenge for the following day was to see and photograph the British sub-species of the Swallowtail.

We decided to visit Hickling Broad, run by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, which proved to be a good decision. During our day, we sighted several Swallowtail specimens, with the opportunity for some photography, even though they often stayed at a frustrating distance from the lens.

There were plenty other wildlife sightings possible at this reserve including numerous species of  dragonflies and birds.

Afterwards, it was the long ride home back to Warminster in Wiltshire with the sun in my eyes all the way.
