|This Black Redstart was a welcome - and overdue - Rainham patch tick.|
|The second half of November is very late for Northern Wheatear.|
|European Stonechats are back in numbers on the reserve.|
Other species recorded today included several Northern Pintail, Little Egret, Sparrowhawk, 223 European Golden Plovers, a Ringed Plover, 22 Dunlin, 14 Common Snipe, Yellow-legged Gull, several Ring-necked Parakeets, 15 Redwings, two Cetti's Warblers and at least 10 Bearded Tits. One 'Beardie', an adult male, was ringed - I will post on this bird shortly.
