The marsh is extensive and there is lots of wildlife though I'm no expert at finding it or photographing it.
There is a long concrete farm track from the village that will take you into the marsh, if you're up for the walk you can go to the bank opposite St Benet's Abbey and loop back to South Walsham along well kept footpaths.

The Ship in South Walsham and White Horse in Upton are both worth a look in

I tend to get trapped into cropping at the original aspect ratio and don't often consider alternatives.
I like the suggestion for the 1st one (using the browser window to cut it off here).
I'm not so sure about losing the water in the third as it loses some context - I'll have a play anyway.
Thanks for the suggestions, always good to get some constructive criticism
