A Trip to Dunwich Heath, Dunwich, Suffolk - 17th February 2019

Having been stuck at the house for the last two weekends on account of tidying up in order to get carpets fitted, it's nice to escape out again, this time to Dunwich Heath - a National Trust spot a mile or two past one of our favourite campsites at Cliff House. Whilst there, the boys get to do some pond dipping, where Fred has a particularly successful haul, fishing out an aquatic stick insect, stickleback fish and a water boatman
