22.11.08: Breydon Water, east end of south wall. Just a short visit on a cold day with snow, hail and bright periods. Noted several wader species including a Bar-tailed Godwit and very appropriately the two Snow Bunting photograph below:

Breydon Water, walked from Yarmouth along south wall. Breydon is used by many thousands of birds at this time of year see photo below, most of these dots are probably Golden Plover. In 2007 nearly 15,000 Golden Plover were present.

But they were outnumbered by Lapwing in 2007 with nearly 20,000 counted. Photo below of just a few!

Below closer view of two Lapwing followed by a Golden Plover
