Arctic cold at Dunwich

A freezing northerly wind greeted us as we set off walking from Dunwich car park.  I have definitely got soft spending most of my time in Mid Wales and Southern France in recent years.  It was very hard going and we got nearly to Walberswick before we found the interesting bird flock.

Seven Shorelarks, 15 Snow Buntings and c40 Twite were quite approachable but once again poor light restricted photography.  Returning with the wind at our backs was a bit easier.  We noted Grey Plover, 3 Dunlin, 10 Redshanks, c50 Teal, 4 Little Egrets and a Green Woodpecker before reaching the warmth of the car.

We took a look from Dunwich cliffs and found a Great Crested Grebe and Red-throated Diver but it seems the King Eider that I was so keen to add to my Suffolk list had gone.

Oh well at least it did not rain.
