A long walk around Thorpeness/Aldringham, 17 November 2018

Belinda and I did a 12km walk starting and finishing in Thorpeness and taking in part of North Warren and Aldringham. The weather was glorious without a cloud in the sky. Birdwise the undoubted highlight were 9 Woodlarks flushed from a stubble field south of Aldringham. By far my largest gathering. Apart from that c30 Fieldfares on Aldringham Common, a scattering of Redwings, Mistle Thrush, Yellowhammer, Coal Tit and Common Buzzard were about it. 3 Common Darters making use of the warm sunlit wood of a gate on North Warren were very late indeed.
