More Water Pipits at Rainham Marshes

4th March 2017

Today there were two Water Pipits flitting around the islands in front of the Butts Hide, but always fairly distant making photography difficult. However, when I got to the Ken Barrett Hide I immediately found a third bird feeding on the far muddy bank to the left of the hide. Still a litle bit distant, probably about 25 yards, but close enough for a few record shots.

Today all the action was in front of the Butts Hide where a single Water Pipit was feeding on the margins on one of the islands. Then it flew to the island right in front of the hide and proceeded to walk along the back edge and then along the front, just 15-20 yards away. You can see that it is starting to moult into its summer plumage. How good is that?
