Rye Meads and Thaxted

I wasn't sure what to do today. I decided to go to Rye Meads but it was a bit misty when I arrived.

There were Redwing in the hedges and a female Blackcap.

Amongst the many teal, shoveler etc was a lovely Male Wigeon

There were 2 adult mutes and 3 juveniles.... they took off and this chap thought nope and came straight back the rest flew off then flew back over but he stayed put.

On my stroll there were plenty of  Blue, Great and Long Tailed Tits in the bushes and in the reeds.

3 Ring Necked Parakeets flew over and later 4 more. A first for me there.

There was a very distant Bittern! And lots of Snipe

So after lunch I went for a stroll around Thaxted. I haven't been for a while...

It is amazing how many planes flew over.

I haven't been to Ickworth for a while. It was a little on the dull side but nice to get out for a walk

The roof is being repaired....

We end with a Coconut and Chocolate Scone
