Rainham Marshes wednesday 23rd July 2014

The Aveley pool seems to be producing the most waders at the moment in the popular corner.   Green Sandpiper,  Dunlin,  common Sandpiper, Redshank, Lapwing were seen there.   We caught up with Tom and Pete at the damselfly pool who had been rooted to the spot since early doors and had got some good closeup shots of the home grown posse of Bearded tits that are tantalisingly flitting about that area.   They did give a good show while Russ and I where there ( the Bearded Tits) which made a good day out.    Whimbrel, Hobby, Kestrel, Shellduck and Families, big flock of Linnets along the foreshore,  Sedge Warbler, Reed Warbler, Cetti's Warbler, Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Whitethroat, Common Tern, Snipe, Skylark.

  1. Great selection of birds found but the special one for me is the Bearded Tit.
