Kessingland for Hoopoe and Grasshopper Warbler

Went back to Kessingland for the Hoopoe (I have not seen a Hoopoe since I found the one at Shingle St in 2012). It was showing quite well at times

When it flew you could see why they call it the butterfly bird
Also present was a reeling Grasshopper Warbler
What a Great couple of Birds

Visit to Benacre for Wryneck and got lots more!!

Kessingland and Southwold

On Saturday we decided to try to find the Dotterel at Kessingland, but no luck,
But found the four Ring Ouzel showing well at times.

Then down the coast to Southwold we found this very showy Chiffchaff in the gorse around the Golf course
