Suffolk (Felixstowe & Rendlesham) – 16th November 2008

Just a couple of short trips out, mainly to do some photography. Firstly to Felixstowe docks and nailed some good Gulls in flight mainly Black-headed but also saw Greater Black-backed and Herring. Plenty of Starlings around too, no doubt the evening roost gatherings will get large.
Then off to Rendlesham to catch a reasonably sized flock of Waxwings feeding on road side berries. Also saw Mistle Thrush (which insisted on aggravating the Waxwings) and Great Spotted Woodpecker.
Life bird count: 376 Year bird count: 264 Month bird count: 40
