Thrush Nightingale. Dunwich Suffolk.June 8th.

An early morning start with sarah to Dunwich and upon opening the car door in the car park we were greeted with the call of the Thrush nightingale. Seeing it was another matter and after it relocated a couple of times i grabbed my first views of its head as it was singing from deep in the canopy.
And no sooner as sarah rejoined me along with our grunting bulldog it relocated again further down the hill along the edge of the minsmere reserve and this time sat up in the open for everyone to get decent views, and considering the distance and elusiveness of the bird i was well happy to get these record shots of a new species.
