London Spoonbill(s)

Yesterday I popped along to RSPB Rainham where the two Spoonbill were present on the aveley pools, normal behaviour for these are to doze all day and feed early morning and evenings and they seem to do just that, with one getting up briefly to have a splash around before returning to normal posture.

Waders are now on the increase with up to three Greenshank present alongside a Green Sand and a Black-wit, in aveley bay three Whimbrel were feeding and were joined briefly by an adult Turnstone before flying north east.

Water Voles are all over the place and the site is living up to its name as being the best place in the country to catch up with this scarce rodent, the dragonfly pool held a juvy Water Rail and no fewer than 35 Yellow-legged gulls were present on the far side.
