After weeks of trying to locate a sizable starling flock on the Suffolk coast this autumn, we have finally tracked them down to the North Warren reedbed. Between 6000 and 8000 starlings were putting on an impressive display last night before settling to roost close to the reedbed viewpoint. This viewpoint is the best place to watch from, and is accessed from the old railway line. It's quite a long walk from any of the car parks though, so make sure you bring a torch to guide your way back to the car.

On the reserve itself, numbers of ducks and geese are increasing, and the reserve has largely escaped any tidal flooding so it's worth wrapping up warm and enjoying a stroll around this lovely reserve.
