Black Tailed Godwit with Spotted Redshank "chilling"!
Minsmere RSPB in Suffolk is a fantastic reserve even though it is very popular, moreso since the recent Springwatch. This time of year is very quiet in the birding calendar but anything can turn up - unfortunately it didn't while we were there! The scrape held the expected waders - really pleasing to see c9 summer plumaged Spotted Redshanks.

A bird of cliffs, the Kittiwake (below) would not be expected to be present on the scrape but thanks to the Sizewell power station towers, they have adapted!
