Suffolk Holiday- Relaxing Birding
Woke up this morning (well actually a week ago now!) to the sorry sight of a dead Purple Hairstreak, which would have been a long awaited and rare lifer...
But enough about dead butters, today is the last in our 3 day holiday in Suffolk, and todays plan was to go to Lackford Lakes just 2 miles down the road. The 'Latest Sightings' in the visitor centre boasted 2 Turtle Doves and a Hobby, none of which I saw... deja vu, I think so?
As I scanned the Slough, I managed to pick out a Common Sandpiper and 4... yes, 4 Green Sandpipers!
Reed Warblers were showy but I can't say the same for the resident pair of Kingfisher... hows about a game of spot the Reed Warbler??
There was nothing much to note of any insects apart from a Common Darter (if the picture doesn't show... I can't help you!).
... and a rather stunning Common Blue Damselfly...
So thats it, the end of our Suffolk holiday... tommorow I'm off to Poole in Dorset for seabirds. Until next time,
