You little beauty

Paul's back in Southend for a couple of weeks so we hit the local area for a day list. We cracked 80 by 5pm and decided that was a good land mark to swap birding for beering. The days highlights were a Wheatear in Gunners Park and this cracking Little Stint at Wallasea.

Local Glossy Ibis and Great White Egret

This spring is starting to give last year's spring a good run for it's money. There's already been Ring Ouzel's, a redstart, a spotted flycatcher, an Alpine Swift, Groppers and Nightingales. Today saw a Great White Egret and the local area's first twitchable Glossy Ibis at Bowers Marsh/Wat Tyler. If the sun came out it could go nuts!
