Suffolk Armed Forces Weekend

This weekend a whole range of activities are taking place across Felixstowe including a re-enactment between the Dutch & English at Landguard Fort with cannon, muskets & swords. On the Sunday the car parks around the Fort will be closed. There is no access down View Point Road for a couple of hours around mid-day whilst the "battle" takes place. The gate into the Bird Observatory in the moat will be closed whilst the "battle" takes place. Any Bird Observatory members on site during the "battle" will have to remain on site until the event finishes. It is recommended that members stay away during the "battle" - unless you like to watch people in fancy dress making a lot of noise with gunpowder then please park off site and walk down over the nature reserve. For a full programme & timings of this event please visit  If any of our members wish to be in the Bird Observatory around mid-day on Sunday please drop me an e.mail at for more details.
