After missing seeing the wild swans last week, due to a tyre puncture I was keen to see them today.
So, just past Blythburgh parking in the first layby on the left along the A12, looking through the hawthorn hedge, I could see firstly 3 Whooper Swan amongst some 72 Bewick's Swans. As the layby was quite close to the birds, I stayed in the car to avoid flushing them and fired off a few shots. The Swans were settled and were feeding and even walking in my direction at one point.
A murmuration of some 3,000 Starlings seen flying in 3 separate flocks over the Lowestoft harbour area at around 3.30pm.
