Patch Update

With the forecast of a howling N/NE gale it was of to Rainham for a high spring tide river watch and on arriving at 08:45 we perched ourselves on the balcony of the centre and realised it was a howling westerly! though we stuck it out as the weather was so poor to do any other birding we was rewarded with an adult little gull amoung the 2500-3000 black heads passing by per hour! and was certainly part of a movement.

Oystercatcher was also a site year tick and 9 ringed plover and 500 dunlin moved through.

little gull (there somewhere!)
