Southend pier and West Canvey marsh

The end of the pier show didn't perform today,  very quiet,  except for a couple of Little Gulls, a lone Sandwich Tern and the usual bevy of Meds.  A few Swallows went through from time to time and a pair of Porpoises did show very well with the incoming tide,   a seal had a meal, showing a dab hand at catching Dabs.      West Canvey marsh on the other hand did have a large flock of wildfowl,  Teal, Widgeon, and Shoveler,   with an assortment of waders scattered round the edge,  12 Black-Tailed Godwits, 7 Snipe, 5 Green Sandpipers and here again a few Swallows.
