Guillemot on the London List !!

News of both Razorbill and Guillemot on the Thames at Rainham led me a merry dance up and down the A13 before finally nailing the latter on the patch at Barking Bay, having needed guillemot for London after seeing razorbill over twenty years ago now at fairlop waters.

Also at Barking 5 1st winter Little Gulls flew up river having past rainham ten minutes previous (thanks Jono) and having flushed a Grasshopper Warbler on the walk up which was unexpected.

Fowl weather conditions and a north easterly winds are great for watching the Thames as this Guillemot proves what great birds can be found in the London recording area.
