RSPB Rainham Marshes Thurs 21st april 2011

Another sunny day and the RSPB site was once again blessed with those big and colourful Greenland Wheatears.   The target pools were alive with Gulls and some wildfowl accompanied by a couple of Greenshank and a pair of Little Ringed Plovers.   The Marsh Discovery Zone was very animated with a number of Redshanks and Lapwings displaying in the wetlands and grassy areas in front of it.   A lone Wood Sandpiper was feeding round the edge of the zone scrape with the Redshanks keeping an eye on it,  and round about at least 3 Little Egrets were stealthily hunting for whatever moves from under their treading feet. Along the riverside the Ring Ouzel was leading the searching birders a merry dance.
