Full of cold today with a banging head and a sore throat…so took off into a good strong breeze and walked down the Suffolk coast from Stutton to Lower Holbrook…kill or cure! I’m not a birder and never know what I’m looking at (and don’t really have the kit, skill or application to photograph it particularly well). These may be Grey Plovers, but are probably seagulls! I saw a heron in flight as well.
We visited Southwold a few weeks ago – you can see those posts by selecting “Suffolk” in the category drop down – top right.
The view of the town is dominated by the lighthouse, typically, it was shut when we visited because it was being refurbished to take on the duties of the decommissioned lighthouse at Orford Ness.
This, perhaps, isn’t your typical view of the lighthouse, being as it’s taken from behind the tower rather than from the coast side. The birds suddenly started swirling around the lamp area which really caught my eye.
