What a Great Day

Fantastic day of birding today at RSPB Rainham Marshes. I thoroughly recommend it, not only some fantastic birds to see but the staff were really helpful and friendly. Today I spotted eight new birds at Rainham for my life list: wigeon, teal, shelduck, lapwing, stonechat, curlew, ringed plover and a buzzard. The stonechat was a highlight, an absolutely beautiful bird that sat on a fence a few feet away from me. I'll definitely be going again! Also I joined the RSPB today so all in all - fantastic! :-)
