A Very Wet Rainham Marshes

Essex Bird Watching:

First days birding in a while and good news i managed to add 3 to my year list and 2 to the life list,:

Life: Little Grebe & Kingfisher

The Kingfisher was seen after leaving the woodland zone and starting along the Ancient Tree Boardwalk abd the Little Grebe was seen (single but numerous heard) in the main ditch / brook running along the Marshland Discovery Zone.

Year 2011: Common Gull

Common Gulls were numerous today being seen along the Thames, Butts Hide waters and Target Pools

Common Gull

Little Grebe
 However i missed the Water Rails yet again even though 3 had been seen that morning probably half hour before i arrived. :(
