Rainham - An early morning stroll along the seawall

A day off and what better way to start the day than a stroll along the seawall. There is always something to see.at Rainham, but this morning was just perfect, the sun coming up, already warm, superb scenery and no people...not one for the first hour!

A Barn Owl hunted in front of the Marshland Discovery Zone great to see in the early morning light.

A male Stonechat could be seen in the distance surveying it's territory with the sky still showing signs of the sunrise...which I missed!
