Minsmere

I has a day over at Dunwich & Minsmere on Tuesday; unbelievably apart from a Cliff Swallow twitch its the first time I've been.

A good day with 87 species listed; my highlight been extremely good views of Woodlark, albeit from the car.

Nothing but the usual suspects and local specialities such as Dartford Warbler. Three Bittern through the day providing my best views of this species to date.

Two pairs of Little Tern, frequented the scrape viewed from East Hide and proper little stunners they were too.

Wheatear, Knot (in summer plumage), Bar Tailed Godwit (also looking good).
