Still Alive!

Wow, well over a month since my last blog post, been busy ringing most weekends, working hard to getting my C permit which hopefully is not to far away.

The patch has been a bit neglected of late but did manage to add both Wood Sandpiper and a long overdue Barn owl putting me on 124 for the Rainham year list.

Hopefully some more birding now the autumn is here, I feel a dunge seawatch calling....
