A weekend at Rainham Marshes

After working most of Saturday I still popped over to Rainham Marshes for a hour or so and a Short-eared Owl was my bird of the day. A brief fly over but a good year tick for my RM year list.

Sunday morning was slightly different as I enjoyed good views of 4 Bearded Tit.

Along with 5 Stonechat

3 Kingfisher was also noted and 5 Redpoll sp over and a Green Sandpiper was still near the Stone Barges.

Its the first time though I noticed that one of the local Kestels has a BTO ring, see photo below.

You can just see the ring on its left leg but sadly unable to read the number. All images of the Kestrel were from the car window.
