Lowestoft Bird Club (The Lounge Lizard)Website
The Lowestoft Bird Club is a very informal group of birdwatchers-birders from the Lowestoft area of north Suffolk. We currently get together once a month at 20:00 hours on the first Thursday of each month in the George Borrow pub in Oulton Broad. We publish our own occasional newsletter, The Lounge Lizard. So why does our website about birds have a Lizard as its logo? Well it all dates back a few years to when birds used to occur in the south of the County. Large numbers of migrants used to be drawn to the brilliant white floodlights of Felixstowe docks. As a result whenever we visited to see the rare ones, we were said to be always sitting around in our armchairs waiting for the call to go to Landguard Bird Observatory of Fagbury Cliffs; and not out looking for birds ourselves. Hence the name the Lounge Lizards. Overnight the situation changed when the white lighting was replaced with less intense yellow sodium lights, and as a result the birds stopped arriving. So you are now more likely to see a Pallas`s Warbler Phylloscopus proregulus in Lowestoft than in Felixstowe. What a shame. Hopefully the lighthouse here in Lowestoft will continue to draw Red-eyed Vireos Vireo olivaceus and Collared Flycatchers Ficedula albicollis into the surrounding parks for a few more years yet.

Languard Bird ObservatoryObservatory
Landguard Bird Observatory is housed in disused Military Buildings on the Local Nature Reserve at the Southern end of the town of Felixstowe in Suffolk. Landguard is probably most famous for a succession of rarities in the late eighties and nineties, a trend which sadly is less the case than it was. However a great deal of excellent work is done by the Observatory Staff, all unpaid except for the Summer Ringer/Warden, and the full time Suffolk Wildlife Trust Reserve Warden. Obviously, the most exciting times to visit are in Spring and Autumn when migration is in full swing, but even the depths of winter can offer some interest, Mediterranean Gull are regular, Snow Buntings and Shore Larks often put in an appearance firstname.lastname@example.org
Bird and Nature Reserves in SuffolkWebsite
A useful list...
Lakenheath Fen, on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, is one of the largest reedbed creation projects in the UK. In 1995, the RSPB bought 300 hectares (ha, 740 acres) of arable land to transform into reedbed and grazing marsh. When it is complete, the area of reedbed will be large enough to provide nesting areas for up to five booming male bitterns....
Orford Ness National TrustWebsite
These walls were originally built to create and then protect rich grazing land from what had been salt marsh. The creation of such large new areas of grazing land required a heavy investment and for this reason only rich landowners could afford it, in this case probably King Henry II in the late 13th century. The banks have stopped salt water from flooding the marsh on high tides and as a result it is now essentially a freshwater marsh. The elongated lagoons at the base of the wall are borrow pits where clay was borrowed to create and then maintain the river walls.

It also boasts a couple of prime birdwatching sites, notably Landguard Bird Observatory (including Landguard Nature Reserve) and Trimley Marshes Nature Reserve. Landguard B.O. is managed and funded by The Landguard Conservation Trust, a voluntary organisation of dedicated people and is primarily a bird migration watch point and ringing station and is probably one of the best recorded sites on the east coast of Britain.
