Discover Suffolk - Walks, Cycle Routes and Countryside Places to Visit in Suffolk

Autumn is such an exciting time of year in the countryside.  With these misty mornings we will soon be seeing interesting fungi sprouting up everywhere, why not sign up for a fungus foray?  Or for real excitement look out for red deer rutting at Westleton Heath.  We love to see a starling murmuration one of nature's magical displays.  If you know of a great place to witness any of these please let us know, or if you have photos that you would like to share we would love to see them.
