A visit to Minsmere this am with Tina. Highlights included 8 Little Gulls, 3 Knot, 7 Dunlin, 4 Ruff, at least seven Spotted Reds, single of Greenshank, Green and Common Sands and good numbers of both Avocet and Black-wits. Also one Cuckoo. I do like juv Meds. Loads of Terns.

Always nice to see juvenile Bearded Tits, especially on the 'local patch' at Trimley Marshes.

A morning around 'the patch' with . Juv Peregrine on its nesting tray on one of the lighting towers on Felixstowe Docks, a late(ish) Spotted Fly along Icky Ridge, Landguard and two of several Painted Lady's which were along the entrance track to Trimley Marshes.

Trimley Marshes this am. GCG + juv. Pullus Avocets at different ages with the later recently fledged. Best breeding season for many years with quiet a high density. I wonder if because there are so many attentive adults on site that they are better able to ward of predators.

A couple more Hoverflies from the garden in Felixstowe. Scaeva pyrastri which is presumably a summer migrant and what I think is Meliscaeva auricollis.

Decided to document some of the insects in our garden in Felixstowe. A selection of Hoverflies. Episyrphus balteatus, Syrphus vitripennis, Eristalis arbustorum and Xanthogramma pedissequum.

A couple of awful didgys of one of the three Wood Sandpipers on the Winter Flood at Trimley Marshes today and a couple of a Green Hairstreak which posed for visitors along the path to the same hide. Good to see so many people attending the Reserve Open Day.

Always nice to find a patch 'rare'. Temmincks Stint on the Winter Flood at Trimley. Other waders around high tide included 7 Barwits, 3 Whimbrel, 2 of Knot, Greenshank and Turnstone, 32 Dunlin and single LRP. 4 Black Terns on the River Orwell were good value.
