Dagenham Chase

Spent the afternoon at The Chase, still very wet underfoot in most areas, but at least it didn't rain. Added four species to my Essex year list; Greenshank and at last some migrants Little Ringed Plover (2), Sand Martin (6) and Willow Warbler (2). Also good numbers of Chiffchaff around today.

sleeping Greenshank - a good site record
