Rainham Marshes

Despite the gloomy weather, I headed down to Rainham Marshes which despite a few rain showers and extremely dank conditions produced seven Black-Tailed Godwit (one on Purfleet, six on Aveley), four Greenshank and three Little Ringed Plover on Aveley Pools, a flyover Hobby, a family group of six Bearded Tit by the DragonFly Ponds, 30+ Little Egret around the reserve, and a Whimbrel on the shoreline of Aveley Bay.

Also conspicuous in number were Sand Martin forced down by the low cloud base.
