Bowers & Wallasea

With the wife and the kids at the Towngate theatre in Basildon, it left the afternoon free after dropping them off on Sunday.

I headed for Bowers first and as usual needed a 4x4 to get to the car park. At a chilli 2 degrees and fog giving very little visibility i headed for the main viewing area where there were lots of gulls coming off the roost in the middle for a spruce up.

In the main, Black Headed, Common, Herring & Lesser Black Backed. The highlight being 2 Yellow Legged, however no Med which surprised me as this is the first time i've not seen one or two here.

After a couple of hours i headed to Wallasea again...Corn Buntings, Short Eared Owl, Marsh Harrier and Hen Harrier. I must admit, i'm taking a liking to these raptors, getting closer views at Wallasea is great. Although with the fog it was eye straining....
