Thursday 13th January – walk ***** – Hemley Church to Waldringfield – sunny, still and mild.

The perfect winter weather continues with very light winds, sunshine and feeling very mild, ideal to get out and about enjoying the best that wonderful Suffolk has to offer, just so lucky to live here:) Usual morning at home then after going out on the bikes yesterday Mag and I decide to drive over to Hemley Church with a picnic but this time take the footpath to Waldringfield. Setting off at 12.20, I forgot to take the rucksack so Mag puts the lunch in a Lidl bag for life heading down the lane to the cottages which then turns into a farm track. It was very mild and we were overdressed, you definitely did not need a big coat. You pass through farmland with lovely views down to the River Deben with hardly a ripple on it, just perfect, so quiet too with very few people about. There was still frost on the ground in the shaded areas and soon spotted a Kestrel which posed for us on a telegraph pole close by:) Reaching the small lake near Waldringfield with some top reflections from the trees and coming out by the sailing club boatyard with no dinghies there at all and very few boats moored on the river, just loads of mooring bouys! We sit by the river and enjoy our picnic, for the second day running we have a yummy chicken sandwich with tomato cuppa soup, we know how to live! So peaceful, pretty as a picture we enjoy watching the birds on the river including Red Shanks, Gulls, Lapwings, Teal and Widgeon. Well rested we continue past the Maybush pub and out onto the river path soon spotting Avocets and Curlews, in fact we had four Curlews fly overhead to search for worms in the nearby fields! We do the big loop before returning to Waldringfield Church for a quick break with a welcome orange before completing the return to the van with sadly my right heel starting to play up, it’s been dodgy a year now and does restrict walking these days:( We had been out for three fantastic hours covering over 5 miles, the absolute perfect winters day:)
