Suffolk 7th - 14th July 2012

I'm back and I bet that no one missed me!

A week in Suffolk based in the village of Wenhaston gave easy access to the RSPB Minsmere Reserve as well as the coastal marshes and heathland around Dunwich, Southwold and Walberswick. A few trips into Norfolk were of course obligatory, but not to any major sites! Weatherwise, we were very lucky and missed most of the heavy, thundery showers. A good weeks birding with a little bit of seaside holiday thrown in for good measure!

A good number of birds (102) including many year ticks and one lifer in the form of Glossy Ibis.

I have about 1000 images to go through and will post on here plus my websites asap!
