Suffolk Coast

Myself and Monkey headed up the East coast in search of migrants yesterday.  With the forecast of light south easterlies and a few showers thrown in, it was looking the ideal place to be.

Starting at Languard we could see there had been a small arrival of Northen Wheatear, with no fewer than Twenty birds present.  Otherwise all we could muster were several Lesser Whitethroat and the odd Chiffy.

Heading north - a stop at Blythburgh added both summer plumed Spotshank and Bar Wit, with some roadside Stone Curlew close by.

Next stop was Kessingland, where Shaunboy had already lined us up a stunning Hoopoe that he found the previous day.

Garden Warbler and House Martin around the sewage works were also seen.

Then next stop, dude central, Minsmere!  Plenty of Camouflage brigade out and the regular person shouting out the obvious from the top of there voices!

We did get good views of a perching Bittern.  Found a male Redstart in the sluice bushes and had a couple of singing Nightingale so a worth while visit.
