Dunwich Heath & Minsmere and just a few scones....

Up and off at crack of dawn to Suffollk..... to do some birding and enjoy some scones at then Sconeathon at NT Dunwich Heath

Great find was a pair of Woodlark... the sky was dull so really pleased to get these shots..

Managed a siting of a Dartford Warble as it popped up and then disappeared.

A robin obliged by posing nicely

as did a Chaffinch

After a wander we decided the cafe would be open and Rob would be there with his scones - he was!!

First two pictures are courtesy of Pete as I managed to wipe my memory card  DOH!!

I have to say at this point that our first round of scones we shared and had half each of each scone sampled... :D

Blackberry & Apple, Hot Cross Bun, White Chocolate & Raspberry

Pear & Ginger

Lemon & Blueberry

Stilton & Ale

From there off to Minsmere. We arrived and started walking - the sky went black and the wind roared and chucked rain at us - we got very web..

But eventually it cleared and we saw a Spoonbill far over the other side.  Lifer for me.  Two or three sightings of Marsh Harrier..

Godwits were about...

A Stonechat ;perched

Several Avocets

A Green woodie..

Adder curled up on the sun - the sky was getting bluer by the minute...

and great siting of a Munjac that didn't seem at all phased by our prescence..

Great to see a Blackcap..

and another great siting -this time a Marsh Tit

and finally back to Dunwich for tea......

A great day out with some good birds
