Red Deer, Dunwich Heath
Dunwich Heath, Suffolk, 4 January 2013
Not exactly birding but a walk around Dunwich Heath with a bunch of schoolchildren (Belinda's childminding charges) isn't without it's benefits! Apart from 10 geocaches I managed to winkle out 5 Dartford Warblers (including a singing male) and a large herd of Red Deer that the kids thought were great. A visit to Minsmere cafe followed and revealed a Marsh Tit visiting the feeders by the centre. Disappointing to note how poor the selection of birding books is in the RSPB shop there now. They seem more intent on selling bird-related nik naks and general tat!
