Went over to Rainham Marshes last Saturday afternoon and missed the Great white Egret and the White Stork but did see the Spoonbill asleep from the Serin mound. But late Sunday evening the White Stork showed really well from road near the tip entrance.

On Wednesday with the NTGG we made our second visit of the season out to the tern rafts by boat. With 50 Black-headed Gull pulli ringed on our first visit it was good to add another 21 along with 9 Common Tern pulli which were all ringed and coloured ring as part of the ongoing project.

Yesterday afternoon I went to Icklingham in Suffolk to see the popular European Roller which showed really well, actually stunningly well. I haven't twitched for a while now but with my wife and daughter with me it was like we were rolling back the years when they would be happy to come out for a day. Ok, I did treat them to a lovely lunch in the near by pub the Guinness Arms- which is really nice if you're out that way.
With most of my time I'm out ringing it was nice to dust off the scope and camera!

Last week I went out with a small team from the Southern colour ringing group to check on the Herons at Netherhall. With 25 active nests and 8 birds ringed and colour ringed and some early Little Egrets nest counted, it was a very productive morning out.
