Early morning visit

Parked up in the small car park above Aveley Bay soon after 06.30, sun was already shining and there was a light north-easterly. Almost immediately it was obvious that Whitethroats had arrived since my last visit on Monday with three or four singing including song flights. Sedge Warblers were doing exactly the same but from the reedbeds. I explored west of the serin mound and then along to behind the Purfleet Hide and back to the car park by 09.00. Only added Whitethroat for the year but had a great early morning walk.
Linnets still in the gorse

Lapwing was closer!
