The first chance for a group outing for Peter, Sue, Linda and me: we decided on a visit to the Brecks, where there was a reasonable chance of decent weather.
First stop was Santon Downham, where a longish walk around the plantations and riverside gave us decent views of Woodlark, Whitethroat, Garden Warbler and Mandarin. (The only woodpeckers were Green and Great Spotted!)
A move to Lakenheath (where we ate a picnic lunch!) took us past Weeting Heath: it was absolutely packed, so we decided to return on the way home.
Lakenheath RSPB never fails to deliver: today it was Cuckoos (lots!) and Hobbies - over fifty of these dapper little falcons were feeding together over Joist Fen. Peter and I had a brief glimpse of what was almost certainly a female Golden Oriole...
Despite the threat of rain, we did return to Weeting Heath: to our surprise we were now the only visitors! After an ice cream, we moved to West Hide, 'enjoying' distant views of four Stone Curlews and three Eurasian Curlews. A great day out!
