Suffolk Holiday- What a tit!
Its day 2 of our 3 day holiday with family in the wilds of Suffolk and an early start to decide what to do. Finally, it was decided that a trip to Lakenheath Fen RSPB would be at-hand, and the weather couldn't have been any better.
The journey was absolutely rubbish. As the reserve was not sign-posted until finally approaching the turning on which to enter the reserve, we managed to visit just about every fen in Suffolk apart from Lakenheath! Upon finally arriving, we sat down to have lunch, when a Skipper flew passed. I chased it (yep, thats how gay I am!) until it finally landed on a dandilion and revealed itself to be an Essex Skipper.
Stuff those stupid Golden Orioles and Cranes (I never liked them anyway), I got myself Marsh Harrier, Hobby, Bearded Tit and Kingfisher! "What next, Bill?" I hear you asking... well, in the last of this thrilling 3-past posting, I do a spot of relaxing birding at Lackford Lakes, adding Green Sandpipers to my list.
