This craft owner was enjoying the day on the River Deben. Relaxing while watching his line, or perhaps having a doze.
Nearby the craft are chugging out of Woodbridge on the full tide.
Woodbridge is where the River Deben turns into a tidal estuary, in the background is the tidal mill which, as the name suggests, rus off the tide, and happily its water wheel still turns.
One of our walks followed the river from Woodbridge, the rich mud and salt marsh means that it is the perfect place to watch multifarious birds throughout the year I'll mention three that include the letter D which would be - dabchick, shelduck and tufted duck. The treat of wintertime is the avocets who no doubt enjoy
the mudflats. I'm not sure what this was originally but I liked their curious shape as they stood above the seaweed and mud to be eventually covered at full tide.
The docked boats at Martlesham Creek (an inlet to the Deben) that will float one hour each side of full tide. As we passed the only thing that was floating was the flock of swans in the channel. Now reaching the end of this
riverside walk I was about to turn inland leaving the sandy path and the River Deben behind.
