Autunm has arrived

Yes its here, officially started from now! met up with Phil and Andy on the sea wall at Rainham this afternoon with the first breeze from a northerly direction and paid dividends with 4 Black Terns (a fine adult and 3 juvs) heading up river mid afternoon on the rising tide, also several noisy juv Common Terns and an increase in waders with 2 Greenshank, 2 Black-wit, 22 Dunlin and 3 Whimbrel amongst usual Redshank, Lapwing, Curlew and Common Sand.

At least 3 Hobby hawking over aveley pools and a fine Whinchat which is by far my earliest returning bird.
