Make it snappy!

for Wordless Wednesday and bloghops various!

q

Between my town and the next, there is an area of marshland known as the Pevensey Levels Nature Reserve. Hundreds of years ago it was the seabed, and in 1066 Willian the Conqueror’s fleet of ships sailed over it on their way to the Battle of Hastings.

On Sunday I travelled along the narrow road, stopping to take some pictures now and again

    I wonder who was more glad … gladder … to have that fence. You or the sheep? They had some pretty mean looks on their faces.
    I enjoy your nature photos.

    What an enchanting, glorious walk this must have been. Thank you for sharing the backstory of these stunning marshes.

    I loved the not so sheepish sheep.
    Hopped in this week.

      It’s lovely along there, and in the autumn it will look completely different. I enjoyed your hop, Natasha!

    I love nature preserves. I would love to roam about. Love all the sheep. Don’t want to got to close though. They are pretty ripe. Cute, but ripe.

    Thank you for hosting the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday and rest of the week, Keith. ๐Ÿ™‚

    As always wonderful photos. I especially like the three sheep looking at the camera.

      Crossing it so often it’s easy to take it for granted, but now and again it’s good to remind oneself how special it is.

    Lovely photos of the marshes. Sheep are very inquisitive!
    We have marshes on the edge of the river below us. There was a sluice gate that let some of the water out if the levels were getting too high. About 4 years ago the tenant farmer told the land owner that the wall holding the gate in position was looking precarious after a lot of storms. In the spring there was another storm and the wall collapsed letting the river flood the marshes and neighbouring field. I hate to think how many birds were nesting there and had their nests destroyed or possibly drowned too. The landlord who is gentry and owns thousands of acres never bothered to get it repaired. So sad.

      That is indeed very sad. Even nature needs a helping hand now and again. My final photo is in fact a flooded field, but that is down to recent torrential rain rather than neglect.

    It reminds Mom a bit of the North Sea Coast where she lived in Germany. There is a huge area between the homes and towns and the beach/North Sea. The dike keeps the waters from coming up too far and there are sheep roaming all over it. It is a very interesting area similar to the one you have here.

    Looks like a nice walk. Marshes can be fascinating; the sheep were a bit of a surprise ๐Ÿ™‚
