Rainham Marshes

A really successful day at Rainham notably due to my first ever London Osprey, that has been a pig to catch up with and evidently not enough time spent staring up into the sky at the appropriate moments.

Also on site were three Hobby demonstrating their aerial proficiency, masters of agility and speed, adults passing on knowledge and skill to the youngsters.  Just great to watch.

On Aveley Bay, 30 Black-tailed Godwit were present on the shoreline as were three Avocet and a single Curlew.  Two Spotted Redshank were present on the Target Pools.

A juvenile Willow Warbler was seen in the Woodland zone, this Wasp Spider stood out in the Cordite, a Grey Seal was seen on the Thames, and five Migrant Hawker zipped around the reeds by Aveley Pools.
