An Afternoon on the Marshes

Talk about a day of two halves, early morning rain and chilly and the afternoon was almost sunbathing weather!

Lots of species in full song now at Rainham Marshes including the Marsh Frogs. Stepped into the visitor centre and got two new bird species for the year. A Common Scoter on the river and a pair of Garganey on the marsh. Also today I saw my first butterflies Brimstone and Peacock.
