12th October 2017 – Walberswick National Nature Reserve

This morning’s walk around Walberswick National Nature Reserve was quite stunning.

At the beginning we saw a Red Admiral and at the end a Common Darter: in between a marsh harrier being harassed by a gull and lots of bearded tits (mainly heard, fleetingly seen but not photographed). The highlights were ringed plovers, dunlin, a pair of stonechats, goldcrest and even a morning murmuration of starlings.
