RSPB Rainham Marshes Sunday stroll

 Howard Vaughan, warden with TUB on a similar walk in 2012

I had a lovely Sunday morning/early afternoon co-leading a bird walk at Rainham Marshes in the company of the hugely knowledgable Howard Vaughan and up to 40 eager birders.

 Some of the crowd

We saw a lot of the usual suspects – Shelduck, Wigeon, Teal, Kestrel and Skylark along with an unexpected couple of Red Kites that materialised distantly before vanishing.
