I didn't get away too early and it was foggy but by the time I arrived in Suffolk the sun was shining. With Minsmere calling I drove past to Dunwich Heath. I wandered down the path and didn't have to try too hard to find a singing Dartford Warbler. I saw about 7 Darties! Nice after the hard winter. Also saw Stonechats and a Marsh Harrier.
I then headed to the land of the £100,000 beach hut .... Southwold. It's one of my favourite seaside towns and has a fine church.
I checked in to the pub and then went to Aldeburgh (the Suffolk coasts other "posh" seaside town). A Sedge Warbler sang in the reed beds by the car park.
I strolled into town for a look about.
Minsmere will come, just not tomorrow!
