Reydon Wood and Covehithe, 6 May 2023

As it's prime time for Bluebells Belinda wanted to visit Reydon Wood on Saturday and I'm pleased to say we hit it just right for an amazing display. One of the best nautral wonders there is. Also there were the usual small numbers of Early Purple Orchids, Wood Sedge, Early Dog Violets, Water Violets at the pond and a pleasing find of Wood Melick, a new one for me. Also along the entrance track was a Midland Hawthorn, only the 2nd time I've managed to find one.

On to Covehithe for a walk down to Benacre Broad and back. It was pretty quiet with my first Sand Martins of the year, Common Sandpiper at the seaward end of the broad, a male Marsh Harrier, a Whimbrel over and Common Whitethroat and Garden Warbler along the lane. A 22-spot Ladybird was also along the lane near the church.
