A north Norfolk site has been named one of the UK's "most glorious coastal nature reserves to spot fantastic winter wildlife".

The Cley and Salthouse Marshes, near Sheringham, were included in a recent ranking by The Times.

The publication named the reserve one of the best sites in the UK for birdwatching and said winter is a particularly good time to see snow buntings.

Snow buntings are small birds that breed in the Arctic but spend their winters in the UK.

According to The Times, up to a thousand can be found in this area between November and March.

The marshland is the Norfolk Wildlife Trust's oldest and best-known nature reserve.

The trust purchased the land in 1926 and has protected it as a designated bird sanctuary ever since.

The reserve now spans more than 300 hectares and attracts around 110,000 visitors each year.
