Gunners Park

After the mid-week high of finally getting Ruff on the patch and waiting 19 years for it, 4 turned up at once on the viewing area Tuesday evening. So, I thought that by going to Gunners Park Sunday and seeing the Barred Warbler it would mixed things up a bit birding wise, but it wasn't to be after standing around for 2 hours with no joy. Its only a year tick anyway and their were some Gulls to be papped near Southend on Sea.

The viewing area

Once again the viewing area is looking good with near perfect water levels by luck as we don't have anyone to control the levels but lady luck is kind this year. The Black-tailed Godwits are still here this evening as Green Sandpiper, Snipe and this Little Egret below. Hopefully something else with a bit more quality might drop in this autumn and hopefully a bit nearer for the camera than this image.
