Day 304, of my 2016 sketch a day challenge

Oulton Broad

Sitting on the banks of Oulton Broad at The Commadore pub. A grey afternoon with very little wind although a few blue sailed dingys sailed in the distance, in foreground several gulls floating on the water.

Carlton marshes

It was a very warm (for late October) morning with a beautiful hazy autumnal landscape with soft mist. This was a view from the bank of the River Waveney looking back towards the Suffolk Wildlife Trust reserve. As I sketched a beautiful group of swans flew past.

White Campion

Still flowering in the hedgerow on the cart path running by Kessingland church. It seems very late in the year but very pleased to find this still flowering. White Campion (Silene latifolia) flowers are open all day and night but it is at night that it produces a strong scent to attract feeding moths.
