Alde Estuary, Suffolk
Black Tailed Godwit
We have just had a lovely week at the above location stying in accommodation at the side of the estuary just below Snape. The weather was glorious although windy Wednesday and colder the back half of the week it was nice and bright and we only had occasional showers.
By far the best birding was on the doorstep only two or three minutes walk to the shore of the estuary. The first morning was foggy but very atmospheric with boats in the thick fog and the plaintiff calls of waders.
There was good numbers of Curlew and Redshank. There was a small number of Advocets and the numbers of Black tailed Godwit seemed to grow through the week.
