Stone me!

Brian Tubby and I took a run down to 'somewhere in Suffolk' to see the pre-migration gathering of Stone Curlews. Arriving at 8.30am we quickly found 83 of these beautiful, reptilian birds standing around in the heather.

Never too close, but providing acceptable photo-ops, we were both really elated by such great views: much better than at Weeting Heath! (Brian's pictures with his superior equipment will be on his flickr pages soon!)

Other birds included Whinchat and, at Santon Downham, Kingfisher, Grey Wagtail and Nuthatch.

The Southern Hawker was in the garden this afternoon while I was mowing the lawn!
