Birdline East Anglia bird news for Suffolk for July 2009
by Robin Chittenden

Another Suffolk rarity misses being clinched at Landguard NR 20th. A Bee-eater that flew high south could possibly have been a Blue-cheeked Bee-eater. With one being seen in Kent two days later perhaps it was.

Unusual raptors in July were a female Red-footed Falcon at Trimley St Martin 11th and a Black Kite at Hen Reedbeds NR 14th and Woodbridge 24th.

A Lesser Golden Plover flew south past Southwold 29th. The bird was thought to be a Pacific Golden Plover. A Great White Egret commuted between Hen Reedbeds NR and Minsmere RSPB throughout the month.

Seawatchers clocked on to a Cory’s Shearwater off Southwold 17th and another flew past Kessingland 25th. Up to four Roseate Terns continued to be seen at Minsmere RSPB.

A Red-veined Darter flew in off the sea at Minsmere RSPB 15th and a female was at Landguard NR 21st.
