    We love Lakenheath especially in the Spring and stay on this site

    http://www.sedgefen.co.uk/thepaddock/

    A short walk into the "back end" of RSPB Lakenheath not often visited by many but some excellent birding to be had, along with Hobby's and Marsh Harriers out the MH window's.

    What is really remarkable is how the birds put up with the noise of all those F15s flying about there!:BigGrin:
