The old landfill held three Northern Wheatear where two Yellow Wagtail flew over. A Hobby then shot through low towards Aveley Bay. A couple of Common Sandpiper called as they flicked low over the Thames.
There were plenty of waders. At least 25 Black-tailed Godwit, three Ruff, a Wood Sandpiper, Green Sandpiper, four Greenshank, Redshank, and several Snipe. A lone Curlew sat on the receding tide on Aveley Bay and there were at least two Yellow-legged Gull there.
A male and female Marsh Harrier were quartering the fields over Wennington, but I inexplicably missed a flyover Osprey.
