Three o'clock this afternoon decided to cycle through the Valley to RSPB, weather was perfect. Howard had already seen Honey Buzzard, Common Buzzards and Black Kite over Earlier. I sat with Phil, Pat and Mark watching the skies and we saw a Buzzard, some Hobbies a Peregrine and a number of snipe and Green sandpipers flying around and a couple of Whimbrel resting in the scrape. On the way back through Hornchurch CP I clocked my first Spotted Flycatcher on it's return Migration feeding frantically on; probably flies. PS if anyone finds a red cycle helmet and a small cycle computer near the scrape HCP, I would be gratefull.
