Well it doesn’t take much for me to shoot off somewhere, so a long weekend seemed an ideal excuse to shake the mothballs out of my tent and head off to Suffolk – RSPB Minsmere to be precise. It’s a wonderful place if you’ve never visited it because of a mixture of habitats and the various wildlife that go with it. Apart from being informed by my daughter that she didn’t think that Alison and I would go camping again (polite way of saying we’re too old) it was superb.  The weather was not great but hey its Britain and seeing so much wildlife can soon make you forget any rain. Like all good things it ended to quickly, so roll on the next break and what it will bring .
