These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

Another slice of Suffolk birdwatching

On our four-day guided birdwatching trip to Suffolk, we had plenty of time to enjoy the very best birdwatching in the area. But don't just take our word for it being a great trip, here's what one participant had to say:

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed our trip to suffolk. What a great place to stay and a lovely group of people. I wish I had started birding a long time ago when I still had sharp eyes and a brain that didn't clunk along in the slow lane. I may never make a "real birder" but I am very slowly making progress and I enjoy it all the more for having so much to learn. Hopefully it won't be too long before we can have another trip

And if that doesn't convince you to come and join us, here are some more photos to give you a snapshot of our trip!
