Lesser Yellowlegs at Southwold, 7 January 2024

With a wintering Lesser Yellowlegs at Southwold it seemed like a good venue for our Sunday walk!

Parking by the church in Walberswick we walked over Walberswick Common and down over the pontoon bridge to the Southwold side of the river. Despite the flood on Town Marshes behind the Harbour Inn having turned virtually the whole marsh into a lagoon I located the bird nice and quickly and watched it at nice close range in the corner nearest the pub. 

Other items of interest were few and far between but it was good to see (and smell that lovely cherry drop scent) of Winter Helliotrope in flower plus some fungi including Tawny Funnel, Purple Jellydisc and Turkeytail.
