Rainham Marshes 6 February, 2008

Managed to grab a couple of hours at the Marshes reserve today. Plenty of Lapwing taking flight, plus several Pied Wagtails were working the margins of the lakes.

On the feed tables, there were a few of the usual Blue Tits and Great Tits, Gold and Green Finches, plus a solitary Reed Bunting who looked like he needed his spring plumage !

Saw an Egret too, which was a bonus:

Off to Fingringhoe Wick, Isle of Sheppey and Minsmere at the weekend, so keep watching for more images................

Rainham Marshes 6 January

Made it to Rainham Marshes (http://www.rspb.org.uk/reserves/guide/r/rainhammarshes/index.asp) on what turned out to be a lovely, sunny morning. A chill in the air, but nice and bright. Goldfinches and green finches were showing well on the feeders near the vistor centre and on the start of the walk, a Stonechat was showing well and posing for the camera (picture to follow). Also saw a water vole, but didn't get a chance to get a snap of him as he made his way through the reed beds.

On the lagoons, saw a lone Godwit of some sort, but didn't get a firm identification. Lot's of lapwings, shellducks, some barnacle geese, widgeon and various other assorted wintering birds.

I will be back there this weekend for another photo session, weather permitting.

More photo's to follow shortly.
