Early morning start provided great scope views of the Little Crake at Bittern Hide Minsmere. A lifer and my 353rd Suffolk bird. The hide was getting very packed so left after a short while to provide space, amid worries of a hide collapse...that hide is on stilts and is probably not designed for 50 odd people especially of my weight.. As for the rest of the period since my last update...well...charts looked bang on optimal, everywhere north of us was heaving with scarce, I went out twice daily..and only saw the odd Pied Fly and Tree Pipit. My only patch tick in a who;le month was a Gull.... (Caspian on groynes).
