Continue along Wherryman’s Way with extensive views of Breydon Water to your right and Halvergate Marshes to your left. Spy many birds and wildlife, including pink-footed-goose (winter), Marsh Harrier, Little Egret and Waders.

On this walk, there are stiles, kissing gates and areas of uneven ground but the majority of the walk is flat. Sections of this walk pass through fields where cattle may be grazing so take care and follow the countryside code.
