    DIsappointed not to find Nature Notes in the electronic edition. I had to scan it:

    At the time of writing, there is some excitement in the air about the BBC's Springwatch programme being hosted by the RSPB reserve at Minsmere; by now pictures should be being beamed into your living room of nature's best bits on the Suffolk coast. If you feel inspired to go out for the full experience of the wind in your face and the sun on your back, but are apprehensive about crowds of people going to Minsmere, why not visit some of the other nearby reserves. They may not have quite the range or quantity of wildlife, but there will always be something to see. There follows a list of mainly coastal, mainly marshy reserves for that alternative afternoon out.
    Framlingham Mere right on your doorstep; the marsh orchids should be in flower very soon.
    Hazelwood Marshes on south side of A1094 into Aldeburgh, before you get to the golf course.
    North Warren access from either Bl122 Leiston Aldeburgh road (east side), or from B13S3 Thorpeness road near the golf club (south).
    Sizewell Belts shares access with Kenton Hills a few hundred metres north of the Leiston "civic amenity" site. Dunwich Heath may be almost as popular as Minsmere; well signposted from Westleton, but you do have to pay to park if you're not a National Trust member.
    Dingle Marshes to the north of the beach car park in Dunwich.
    Westwood Marshes either from Newdelight Walks about 1½ miles south of Blythburgh on the BIl2S Westleton road, or turn sharp right in Walberswick, just past the church.
    Hen Reed Bed from west side of AI09S Southwold road, just after you cross Wolsey Creek.
    Most of these reserves offer the chance of experiencing Minsmere's star species, but without quite as many Homo sapiens to contend with. I should be quite surprised if there weren't bitterns, marsh harriers, bearded tits
