Wainford Mill sluice with playboating water flow

Wainford Mill at a nice play boating level, around 0.5 m on the Billingford height gauge.

Sometimes the wave is black























Sometimes the wave is white

Walberswick with a southerly gale

A very breezy walk at Walberswick, surf completely blown out but nice view to Sizewell B power station across the bay.

























South pier of the harbour entrance

























The entrance viewed at half ebb, spring tide with an onshore gale is not pretty

























Harbour itself is very calm

























Walking back up the Dunwich River to the car

Roaring Arch weir after a day of rain

The Billington river gauge was reading 0.34m at 04.30am this morning. Drop looks a little more paddle-able today:

Agarics at Walberswick

A couple of nice Fly Agarics in the woodlands at Walberswick nature reserve


Cattle in the mist

Cattle on the Haddiscoe marshes. Cropped to remove the powerlines and because I rather like the line of cattle...

Priory Windpump, St Olaves

Dusk on the footpath from the suspension bridge. Possibly one of the more over photographed wind pumps in the area.


























Norwich Castle

Picnic in the grounds of the castle last weekend

Angles Way past the lower end of Flixton Decoy

We all went for a walk on the Angles Way, this time past the lower end of Flixton Decoy.

























Horses on the skyline of a "big" Waveney valley-edge hill.

























Cattle, a very mixed bunch, on the marshes



















And butterflies



















and blackberries

























and bridges.

























This is one of the two dams at the lower end of Flixton Decoy, they support a lake over half a mile long.



















A lovely place, Suffolk.

Great Yarmouth Beach

Sea Holly on the scrubland between the power station and the Pleasure Beach, yesterday.



















There was an onshore breeze and some interesting weather on the way, so the beach was deserted.



















Never the less, much fun was had with sand castles.

Lowestoft Angles Way

We have no windows at work. When slogging through my to-do pinboard becomes a little too much I go outside to see if the sun is shining. Sometimes it is! Then Angles Way beckons for an hour in my lunch break.

A small brown, possibly a Meadow Brown



















And a Tortoise Shell



















Nice hoverfly



















Just a Campion but came out nicely
























On the Angles Way


Wolsey's Creek

We went for a walk at Wolsey's Creek, half flood, moderate tide, bright and breezy, just needed jackets.



















This is the view across Bulcamp Marshes towards Bulcamp House and Whitehouse Farm. It's really a level tidal mudflat rather than a saltmarsh.



















Looking over the entrance to Wolsey's Creek, same view. There is supposed to be a footpath down the far mudbank but I have to say the mud looks rather soft!



















Steps down to the hide of the freshwater marshes. This creek used to be the main channel of Wolsey's creek until it found a much more straight route to the Blyth. Well silted up now.
