Thursday 11th February - walk **** -The Dip to Felixstowe Ferry Sunny periods with a cold onshore breeze.

After four days when we had some snow there was none here today in Felixstowe, temperatures overnight were forecast to drop to minus 10 but only made it to -2.5 here on the coast still pretty cold! After yesterdays quick walk at Felixstowe Ferry in brilliant sunshine Mag and I were keen to take a longer walk there today. With sunny periods from the off we spent the morning at home, then after lunch we drove to our windsurfing spot at The Dip to park. We then set off along the prom which was pretty icy in places so you had to take care and it is tiring walking on the slippy stuff! It was not as sunny as yesterday with more cloud and the wind had turned dead onshore being very chilly. It was still lovely to walk past the snow-covered golf course with Bawdsey Manor ahead. We had glimpse of sunshine as we approached The Ferry along the River Deben. We meet a lady who said she had spotted a seal she thought was in some trouble but we did not see it. Through the boat yard having a chat to one of the house boat owners who had already fallen on the ice before continuing along the River Deben path with the bed of reeds and frozen dykes looking a picture. There were several birds spotting a Stone Chat first and then loads of waders in the mud including some Knots, Lapwings, Red Shanks, Oyster Catchers, Dunlins and a lone Curlew:) Reaching the stile with great views of the delict house surrounded by snowy farmland as we turned left onto the very muddy Tomlin Bank, seeing what we thought were several Fieldfares as there are apparently loads here in Suffolk! We were surprised how wet and muddy the path back to the golf club house as it so cold! Through the cliff top car park still blocked off by snow and back to the van and home.

PS - Got one of the below pic on BBC Look East weather this evening, believe it or not it includes Maggie my back model :)
