Weds 30th March 2011 Ingrebourne , Rainham, Belhus

Wasn't the best of weather today after all that sunshine we've had lately but the only full day we could get out this week.   Firstly Russ and I checked out the Paddock for wheatears and sure enough there was one there at last, hope it's the first of many.   Always a stunning bird and we got a few OK? shots.   While we were watching the wheatear there was a Yellowhammer right above our heads.   We then moved on to rspb Rainham and did a circuit of the reserve.  It was a bit quiet but we did see,  2 Little- ringed Plovers, a few Snipe, some Chiffchaffs and plenty of wildfowl.   The weather took a turn for the worst so we headed off and ended up at Belhus where we got soaked but managed to spot some Snipe ,  Redshanks and 4 Sand Martins and that was it until a better day.
