Dagenham Chase

Spent the afternoon at The Chase, warblers have certainly now arrived with Whitethroat, Blackcap, Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler dominating. A couple of Reed Warblers and one each of Sedge and Cetti's made it a good warbler day. Also three Common Terns on BADAG Lake showed well, although one definitely didn't want to play goosberry, as they continually displayed and chased around the lake.

It was great to find the Little Owl showing well as it roosted in the open and two Little Ringed Plovers on the slack were good to see.
