Welcome to my blog.
Within these pages you'll find a mixture of illustrated trip reports from my travels, local birding and the odd UK twitch!
As I further develop theblog I'll be looking to add articles and links that we hope will be of interest to birders everywhere.
Near Metfield, Suffolk, 24 June 2012
With a little time to spare before the football (wish I'd not dashed back for it in the end!) I ventured into north Suffolk and the village of Metfield near Harleston. On a first look I thought the usual Frog Orchids weren't there but closer inspection revealed at least 17 plants. It's amazing how easy it is to forget how small they are in the course of a year! A couple of early Pyramidal Orchids had popped up and it was also pleasing to note a trio of clover sp - the scarce Sulphur Clover, Red Clover and White Clover.
