Essex Survey Site

Today was the first of the Essex Thameside winter bird surveys, which was a fairly quiet event, being a high tide count waders were pretty thin on the ground as were the wildfowl, a flock of 20 Common Scoter and a similar number of Brents the highlights.

Passerines were represented with a couple of Chiffchaff, several flocks of Meadow Pipits had Rock Pipits amongst them and a total of 18 Stonechat was my highest count for the site.

Northern Wheatear and a single Swallow were also seen.
