Rainham Marshes

Spent a couple of hours this morning watching the gulls near the stone barges. I had hoped to see the Iceland Gull which was seen earlier in the week, but to no avail. I was well compensated though with a smart adult Mediterranean Gull in near full summer plumage. Also saw Oystercatcher and Grey Wagtail. Walked to the reserves visitor centre by which time it had begun spitting with rain. After a bite to eat Howard found yesterday's two Ruff.
