27th September 2013
The visit to Rainham today was a bit of a non-event. It was extremely quiet everywhere and the only near-miss was a brief glimpse of a pinging Bearded Tit by the dragonfly pools. However, you can always rely on the Marsh Frogs to provide some entertainment and today was no exception.
The other form of compensation at Rainham is the House Sparrows which gather around the feeders close to the visitor centre. We do have House Sparrows down our road, but they are very few and far between and only rarely venture into our garden, mainly during the winter months. Therefore, when I get opportunities like this, I find it difficult to resist.
What little beauties.
