Waveney Forest, 14 March 2021

With lockdown easing slightly we ventured a little further for our Sunday walk. One day soon we might even get to see the sea again! 

Jeremy Gaskell had found and kindly given me precise directions to some flowering Spring Starflowers in the forest which gave our walk some purpose. These scarce naturalised plants were found nice and easily at the start of our walk and were looking lovely on the edge of a forest track. Further round our long walk we were put onto a basking Adder which was docile and allowed some nice  lose photographs. 2 Red Kites, numerous Siskins a few Lesser Redpolls and some Wild Daffodils were also seen in the forest and on our loop out to St Olaves and back via the Angles Way.

After visiting my Great Grandmother's grave at Somerleyton church and laying some Mothers Day flowers we walked down to the river from the village. Beside the first flood of Herringfleet Marshes was a nice bright male White Wagtail hinting that spring is just around the corner...
