A Day Of Birdwatching At Rainham Marshes RSPB

Yesterday, I visited RSPB Rainham Marshes. The weather wasn’t the greatest, but I had a wonderful time. The site is fully accessible, has a visitor centre with cafe, and some wonderful managed marshland. The birding was brilliant and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. There’s no doubt that I’ll be going back there soon.

My bird of the day was definitely the Northern Pintail, with the Redwing being my second favourite. Here are a few photo’s from my visit.
