A wet and gloomy day, so not one for sunbathing on the beach. Luckily at RSPB Minsmere we were able to have a decent walk, shelter every now and again in a hide and see some lovely birds (and flowers).

The stars were stonechats, dunnocks and a whitethroat in the dunes; black-tailed godwits, mediterranean gulls, common and sandwich terns, spotted redshanks on the scrapes; and a reed buntings in the reeds. We even heard a cuckoo.
