A Brief Visit to Suffolk

I haven't been to Suffolk for a while, so it was nice to squeeze in a couple of days in mid April.  It was relatively quiet, a week or so too early for most migrants.  However, it was nice to watch the Marsh Harriers at Minsmere:

No visit to Minsmere is complete without a Bittern!

Norfolk Coast

Below are some recent shots taken in Norfolk in February.

Shore Lark on the beach at Salthouse - a beautiful and unusual bird I haven't seen for a number of years.  This took some locating as it was almost invisible on the shingle:

 
 
Barn Owl at dawn near Cley:

 
 
Turnstone on the beach at Cley:
 
 
 
 
One of my favourite images for some time - a trio of waders (Turnstone, Knot and Sanderling) at Titchwell.
