Thousands of wading birds have put on a spectacular aerial display over the mudflats at Snettisham in West Norfolk.

A few times every year higher-than-average tides force thousands of waders including knot, black and bar tailed godwit to take flight, and advance up the mud flats in search of food.
And hundreds of people gather at RSPB's Snettisham nature reserve to see the wading birds literally being pushed off the mudflats by the fast, incoming tide.
Many of these waders will migrate south during the summer but are likely to return on their way back north to breed again next year
