Rainham Marshes

A beautiful day on the Marshes and a few decent migrants seen today.

It started off slowly but then slowly picked up during the day as it warmed up.

The highlights were two male Blackcap in Woodland, at least four Common Buzzard, a single Marsh Harrier, four Avocet flew over the river wall, the resident Barn Owl showing itself from the box, two Little Ringed Plover on Wennington, a pair of Northern Wheatear on a set-aside near the MDZ, a showy singing Sedge Warbler near the Purfleet Hide, a total of eight Sand Martin, and lots of Redshank and Lapwing around the reserve.

Plenty of Peacock were seen as were a couple of Small Tortoiseshell and two Brimstone.
