15th June 2016 Walberswick, Dunwich Heath and RSPB Minsmere

Walberswick, Dunwich Heath and RSPB Minsmere

A fabulous day – but very frustrating from a photography point of view: a Robin and a Pied Wagtail on the lawn of our lovely holiday home in Walberswick; a great deal of effort spent trying to photograph a Dartford Warbler (with very little success) and a female and male Stonechat on Dunwich Heath; a quick tour of RSPB Minsmere watching Greater Spotted Woodpecker, Bearded Tits, Marsh Harriers, Bitterns, Terns fishing  and a Linnet (I think), and searching unsuccessfully for a Stone Curlew. All great fun and some good views but very poor photographs. As someone dear to us once said: “The world is not all about birds”. Certainly true today! Luckily the weather was good and we really enjoyed the swim at 9 o’clock this morning, the walks in the beautiful Suffolk countryside and the meal at the local pub this evening.
