Rainham Marshes

I took a trip down to RSPB Rainham Marshes today. It was a bit chillier than the recent whether we have experienced over the last week after the snow but still a mild day to be out in. Walking through the woodland area it sounded like spring with the air filled with bird song and plenty of tit flocks around. There large numbers of Lapwing still around but the real bonus was the excellent views a very close Reed Bunting that was feeding on the bull rushes. 

Over all rather a good walk round I just hope the weather keeps this way.
