Two of the four Pink-footed Geese at Rainham today - a site tick.
The good news this morning was a Bluethroat at Rainham - a great find by Les Harrison. The bad news was that I was at home, packing for the Azores, and couldn't get there until I was en route to Gatwick Airport in the afternoon. By that time the bird had gone to ground (not that it ever showed well during the day, apparently), so I had to be content with some compensation in the form of four Pink-footed Geese - my first-ever for the site (unlike Bluethroat, having seen a singing white-spotted male back in 1994). Rainham patch-list 2010 update:
154. Pink-footed Goose.
