A trip up river

High numbers of curlew on the edge of the salt marsh

A high tide, a fine afternoon and a couple of hours to spare - what nicer than a short cruise up the River Deben looking for waders and anything else that might make a good photograph?

Kirton Creek

Lots of black-tailed godwit, lapwing, redshank, a few avocet, 2 common sandpiper, 1 green sandpiper, greenshank calling, little egret.  A kingfisher flew across the river while we were drinking tea, and a marsh harrier flew low over The Ferry as we returned to the mooring.
