Sutton Hoo and Upper Hollesley Common, 6 May 2024

As an actual NT destination we found Sutton Hoo very disappointing. There isn't much to see and the vast majority of what is there are replicas, the genuine articles being in the British Museum.

The walks around the large site were nice however with the undoubted highlight being 2 Nightingales singing strongly and giving some views. Garden Warbler, Lesser Whitethroat, Common Whitethroat, Reed Warbler and 4 Greenshanks also livened things up.

After leaving the site we wanted another walk so drove the short distance to Upper Hollesley Common. Despite the weather starting to turn wet it was alive with birds - c25 Crossbills, 3 Woodlarks, 2 Tree Pipits, Redstart, Stonechats, Siskin and Dartford Warbler in 45 minutes!
