PICTURE GALLERY: Thousands flock to the Royal Estate in Norfolk for Wolferton Scarecrow Festival
They said there were more scarecrows than people living in Wolferton over the Bank Holiday weekend.
It was hard to keep count as you followed the scarecrow trail that winds around the pretty carrstone village, on the edge of the Royal Estate.
Thousands of people flocked to see the scarecrows of all shapes and sizes adorning gardens, walls and roofs today.
They included a vicar the worse for wear, crashed out in a hammock clutching a bottle of wine, Doctor Who peeping out from his tardis in a cottage garden and HM The Queen - looking suitably regal - and former tabloid queen Rebekah Brooks.
There were refreshments a-plenty, competitions for children and a lively display by the King's Morris at the social club. The Royal Station was also open for tours.

The tradition began 10 years ago, when villagers borrowed the idea from a similar event in Yorkshire.
You can see the scarecrows again from 10am - 5pm on Bank Holiday Monday. Follow the signs from the A149 coast road to free car parking off Scissor Crossroads.
