RSPB Rainham Monday 26th jan
The peregrine wasn't having much success hunting round the marsh today, plenty of tearing about most of the day filling the sky with waders and wildfowl but I suppose there is an air of inevitability in those hunts. Good numbers of Dunlin, Lapwing and Golden Plover were moving around on the marsh with quite a few on the Purfleet scrape with just 1 Black-Tailed Godwit with a metal ring. At the Butts end the Marsh Harriers were keeping those flocks very alert. Thats one thing about having a vibrant raptor population you know whats about.
