Rainham Marshes RSPB - the flagship reserve
A very good start to the year at Rainham Marshes RSPB Reserve with everything hanging on from yesterday inluding the juvenile GREAT SKUA (pictured above), EUROPEAN SERIN (photographed superbly above by James Hunter), Marsh Harrier, Buzzard, Ruff and usual smaller stuff. All in all about 80 or so species seen. Mike Dent had two BITTERNS fly in near dusk which has got all us locals jealous! We will be looking harder in the next few days!
I will open up at 0800 on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd (Howard Vaughan)
