18th October 2016 – Snape Maltings

A complete change in the weather with heavy rain for most of the morning. Visited the famed Snape Maltings with its impressive concert hall and retail complex (and coffee shop) where we waited for the rain to stop to visit the nearby Snape Reserve. It was cold and blustery but mainly sunny as we walked along the northern side of the Alde River to Snape Warren.

Not much opportunity for bird watching but we did see Avocet (surprisingly we hadn’t seen any at Minsmere), Redshank, Black-headed Gull, Egret, a solitary Mute Swan and a bull scratching himself on the barbed wire. I missed the opportunity of 6 Goldfinches at the beginning of the walk as I was too slow to get my camera out!
