Barking Bay 31/08/11

managed to spend a couple of hours at Barking Bay today.
Not much on the River, 2 common sandpipers ,1 Redshank and 2 Little egrets were all apart from the usual Shelducks, Cormorants and Gulls(mental note to self- attend gull i.d workshop at Rainham next year). Away from the river there were 2 Kestrels 3 Meadow pipits (i think) 1 Whitethroat 1Reed Warbler,2 Whinchats 1 Wheatear , severalCrows & Magpies 1 blackbird and a starling.also several birds that were to quick for me to make an educated guess at Not much but i enjoyed it.
