A Day in Suffolk

Suffolk was the chosen area for the 1st of 2 days of wldlife watching this week, myself along with Adam (whose birthday it is this week!), Martin and Adam's dad left at 5.30am and reached Minsmere RSPB reserve by 7.30am. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great with plenty of grey cloud and wind but we didn't let that ruin the day! Some of the pics are a bit dreary but you get the idea, the first few are at Landguard Nature Reserve near Felixstowe. Enjoy!

A group of Turnstone that let me get pretty close (had to do some creeping along rocks!)


Meadow Pipit


Martin and Adam walking along the coast


Chaffinch


Marsh Tit - these buggers just don't stay still!

Marsh Harrier, one day i will get a good picture of these.


Little Grebe


Great White Egret very distant but still HUGE!


Siskin - incredibly hard to get a good photo of these guys feeding in Alders


Muntjac Deer




Redpoll - again, distant and hard to get a good photo


Coal Tit


Martin "The Deerstalker" Bevan....doing some Red Deer Stalking, and succeeding!
