Places in Suffolk to watch birds


There are many places in Suffolk to watch birds, if you know of any that is worth a mention please list them here

Any of the River Estuaries on the Suffolk Coast will attract waders, duck and geese and at times a huge variety can be seen

Some of those that I have found particularly good are

  • The River Alde estuary especially on a falling tide
  • The River Orwell Estuary from Levington Creek to the Orwell Bridge
  • The River Deben estuary from Kyson Point [Woodbridge] to Melton Bridge
  • The River Stour at Wrabness on the Essex side and at Mistley Walls
  • The Alde/Ore estuary at Boyton Marshes and Flash
  • The Blyth estuary by Tinkers Walk or the A12 Trunk Road by Blythburgh Church

Where to spot birds in Suffolk


Loompit Lake near Levington Marina is a freshwater fishing lake, I have been reliably informed that up to 50 Little Egret and up to 100 Cormorants roost here at night, on this occasion 7 Little Egret and one Heron can be seen in this picture
