26th August 2013 - Rainham Marshes

I really should write blog posts straight after the trip, as I have minimal recollection of this trip to Rainham apart from getting my first Lesser Whitethroat for the year and seeing a Reed Warbler behave in an extremely odd manner.  I’m sure it was a lovely walk as Rainham always is.

Small Tortoiseshell 
Aha, I have remembered something else – we also saw our first Clouded Yellow. What a glorious butterfly!  There was also a seal down on the shore with a couple of Black-tailed Godwits and Common Tern.
