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.
Unfortunately most of my photos from my trip to Walthamstow Wetlands (back in the summer) were of poor quality. My viewing point, and the time of day that I visited, meant that the contrast was too strong, leaving deep shadows. I’m particularly disappointed that I didn’t get a decent photo of the little grebe. I must pay the Wetlands another visit.
