On the common there was much breeding activity with Whitethroat and Linnet very much evident along with some more common finches. We also saw Lesser Whitethroat, Wheatear, Meadow Pipit and Swallow through.
At Felixstowe Ferry a walk out produced Reed Bunting, Reed Warbler, Redshank, more Linnets, with Common Tern and all the regular Gulls over. No rarities, but a very fruitful day none the less. Life bird count: 369 Year bird count: 211 Month bird count: 49
