The free exhibition by Salthouse artist John Hurst at the Cley Marshes visitor centre will run until Sunday, February 24 between 10am and 4pm.

Mr Hurst, who grew up in north Lincolnshire, grew up in an agricultural family and graduated from Bishop Grosseteste College, Lincoln, in fine art in 1972.

He has previously worked on commissions for patrons including the Earl of Yarborough, Sir Ian Botham and the Dean of York, Durham and Lincoln Minsters in the form of limited edition prints.

The Norfolk Wildlife Trust bought 400 acres of marsh at Cley in 1926 to be used as a bird breeding sanctuary, which was replicated across Britain in order to conserve nature.
