Had a bit of running around to do this morning so didn't arrive till about 10.30. It was still a bit foggy but there wasn't much to see on the mud or river. walked to the middle ditch where a mystery bird was hiding and jumping out flying along the ditch and hiding again. Turned out to be a green sandpiper (must be the one dave saw yesterday as were the 2 green woodpeckers).
Headed over to the cemex ditch where i saw 1 ltt and heard a great tit calling and a solitary house sparrow.
walked back along the foreshore where i had 2 pair of oystercatcher 8 curlew 4,0000000000 black headed gulls and about 80 blackwits that flew down river towards rainham in three seperate groups. As i got back to my car in renwick rd i heard a chiff chaff calling in the trees opposite ,next to the power station, went over there to try and get a photo but no luck.
