A salt marsh north of Burnham Overy Staithe, Norfolk, UK.




Two creek wades will be needed. Low tide is at about 15:20 UTC. In the summer, this would be easy. In January, not so much. I have a track-log of a walk here on 2008-08-26 before I started geohashing.


I wondered if I'd be considered insane wading the creeks in January rain with a temperature of 6C. It turned out that I was far from the first. Several bird watchers and other eccentrics had left their footprints in the mud. The car park was surprisingly full for the time of year so I had an audience. I met three other people on the path to the hashpoint. The path was slippery but passable. The creek wade was cold and a tad painful as the foot and shin muscles cooled rapidly with cramp sensations. Luckily it was a spring tide and the water was as low as it ever gets so the wade was short. The second creek was almost dry. In places the black anaerobic mud was ankle deep. What fun! It all washed off on the return wade but enough was left to stink out the car on the drive home.

In the photos below, the blue track is today's expedition. The brown is my expedition record from 2008 saved on Wikiloc.

After dry icy Arctic weather for several weeks, milder wet Atlantic air had arrived. There was intermittent light rain for the walk. This became heavy on the drive home.
