It was a bit of a wet day at Minsmere (29/10/18), managed to get this photo of a rainbow between the showers.
Young Mute Swan was standing near the path and said hello.
A Bittern was stalking in the reeds from the Isle of Mere Hide
Took a drive to Southwold to see the Red Breasted Flycatcher.
At the end of the day we were searching for a Yellow Browed Warbler, did not find one. Did some sea watching and saw Velvet Scoter, Eider, Oystercatcher, Cormorant and Common Scoter fying out at sea. Despite the weather had a good day out.
