Barking Bay

Yesterday morning I spent a couple of hours walking our dog around the bay. It was a grey day, and the early morning fog never really disappeared. I add two species to my Essex year-list, Linnet two 60+ flocks and a Cetti's Warbler around the eastern most reedbed.

The tide was well out, and the shelduck images below show how far away the birds can be at low tide. I stood in the same position and gradually zoomed out.

Can still see them, just!
Can you see them now?
