This morning I was back at West Canvey Marsh, hoping that yesterdays adult Glaucous Gull might reappear, it didn't! I got quite excited for one brief moment when I thought I had found it, but alas it was the leucistic Herring Gull which as been seen recently on Pitsea landfill site. Rubbish cropped image below!

The Grey Heron below showed a little better. Also seen was an adult male Marsh Harrier hunting the ditches in the back fields and causing the 500 odd wigeon to panic.
