OK probably made the worst decision of the year so far by not going Cornwall for the weekend and day twitching the scillies!!! never mind there only birds i keep telling myself, before crying....

Anyway Saturday me, monkey, shaunboy and dirty dick twitched the short trip to the other side of Essex for only my second PALLID HARRIER which showed nicely through the scope with the help of a local birder/farmer and the aid of a 4x4.

Sunday still crying, i visit the patch aka Barking Bay and find Dave Mo already in position and added two patch year ticks, Common Buzzard that flew low north and a Little Egret that flew east along the Thames plus good local birds included both Arctic and Black Terns, Bar-tailed godwit, Hobby and three Whinchat, not a bad haul for 90mins birding.
