Below is a picture I took of a Swallowtail caterpillar a few years ago.
The best wildlife seen was on our way home, two bird species.We stopped off at Cley-Next-The-Sea for lunch, and while we was sitting by the window scanning the scrapes 11 large white birds was showing, they was SPOONBILL, but it didn't stop there, as I continued panning along I found one more. 12 Spoonbill is something I never thought I would ever see.
Not wanting to catch the M25 traffic I wanted to stop off at Weeting Heath to check out the Stone Curlew situation. We arrived about 5.15. Whenever I have been there whatever time of day it has never been busy, anyway I walked up to the west hide where I met 1 photographer. I sat along from him and opened the flaps where I was left speechless for a moment, expecting to see about 3 or 4, that is about what I have always seen when I have visited, this time there was a lot more, in total there 14 STONE CURLEW, one pair had 2 young. I spent a good hour observing them. I did manage to get a few pictures of them but none very close.
