West End - Rainham

A beautiful bright sunny walk around the west end of Rainham Marshes. The stone barges held a high tide roost of mainly Black-tailed Godwits and Redshanks. A Raven was first heard cronking away as it flew over the landfill site while a Common Sandpiper flew by heading east close to the foreshore. Further on the first-winter Brent Goose showed distantly in Aveley Bay.
