Minsmere and Suffolk Coast

On 10 October we went on a boat trip on the River Ore, and saw many waders including Avocet Recurvirostra avosetta, Curlew Numenius arquata, Redshank Tringa totanus and Snipe Gallinago gallinago. We also saw a Common Seal Phoca vitulina bobbing in the river.


On 11 October we went to RSPB Minsmere and recorded 44 bird species. Below are photographs of Avocet, Black-tailed Godwit Limosa limosa and Little Egret Egretta garzetta.
