Early Morning Chase!

Spent the first four hours of daylight for the last two days at Dagenham Chase. Still a few warblers around with at least 10 Chiffchaff today, 4 Blackcaps and a Lesser Whitethroat yesterday and two singing Cetti's Warblers both days. Yesterday there were 8 Wigeon on The Slack, my first returning birds and a reminder that winter is only just around the corner! A Sparrowhawk flushed 8 Snipe from The Slack yesterday, with four feeding in the open today. Three Little Egrets on the scrape today along with six Grey Herons.
I didn't do that, honest...it was a horse!
