Any interest in a Suffolk Coast Meet, concentrating on a small (approx 16 miles) area from Dunwich in the South to Covehithe in the North?
The areas's packed full of interesting features - not least Covehithe, an intriguing place under threat from coastal erosion (tree stumps and boulders of black soil litter the beach).
Dunwich Heath is a NT property photographed by Joe Cornish for the Trust's "Coast" book - full of heathers, gorse and extremely photogenic silver birch trees.
In between there's Southwold (anyone photographing the row of coloured beach huts will have their camera confiscated) with, among other things, its lighthouse.
There's also the Benacre National Nature Reserve, at which - according to the English Nature's website - the Marsh Harrier is one of many species seen.
I've not organised one of these things before (I couldn't organise a chocolate orgy in a Cadbury's factory) so you'll have to bear with me on this. But if there's enough interest, I'll prepare a suggested itinerary, including the above mentioned sites and any others that those familiar with the area may wish to put forward.
Timing - I'm tentatively thinking about the latter half of April but, again, I'm open to suggested alternatives (eg when are the heathers on the heaths likely to be at their best; when is the best time to look out for the bitterns occasionally seen at Benacre).

Depending on dates i would be interested,
Did not get the bit about Beach huts?.
Sorry, Andy - the beach huts at Southwold have to be the town's most photographed feature. Charlie Waite is only of many who have set their sights on them.
I suppose I should propose some dates. How about the last weekend in April/first weekend in May?
Reckon I could be on for this.
(Keep yer Bitterns...we've got so many up here, we're thinkin' of havin' a cull)
Careful, Keith. Somebody might get bittern twisted!
Not sure they'll let me through the Norfolk/Suffolk check point due to my previous crimes against Suffolk. But I'll try and find a hole to get through depending on dates.
Not you as well Bernie! I havent been allowed back since I tried to overtake a tractor on a Wednesday.
Once bittern, Keith, twice...no, I can't think of anything.
Bernie, Suffolk's a very forgiving county. After all, they let me in six years ago. Of course, they may be regretting it now.
I'm going to start a rolling list of names and will keep to the two suggested weekends (last in April/first in May). I'll post a suggested detailed itinerary by the weekend. I think I may be getting the hang of this.
You'll be OK, K - we've got a dual carriageway now.
Crikey! Been longer than I thought
and they'll have filled it full of speed cams.

One lane is still a dirt track though.
Yes, and that's the modernised lane. You should see the other one.
Put me down for this one Ian.
Oh yes Bernie, there's no roads from Suffolk into Norfolk, as they all leave. Joking aside though, Norwich is a great city even if Delia is from Suffolk.
Cannot do the 7th May BTW.
