Today was a day of high expectations in the hope of coming across a few winter birds at Landguard Felixstowe.
Looking for possible Snow Buntings, Purple Sandpipers, Turnstones and Sandlings proved hard to come by for the exceptions of a few Turnstones that were easily spooked.
The Rabbits on Landguard reserve were plentiful and happy to mix with the people.
Starlings everywhere and thats a good sign as we seem to have lost a lot of these birds over the recent years.
I also had the pleasure to try out my new photographic toy, the Lee system Big Stopper 10 stop filter.
Things started off badly, i dropped the glass filter and chipped the centre...now that is bad luck.However i do not think there is lasting damage as the results were pretty impressive even for a first time user like me.
Here are a couple of couple images taken today in Felixstowe , one underneath the pier and the other on the newly completed Fludgers prom.
