266. Rose-ringed Parakeet, Peckham Rye, 2/4

 

So like so much of London, we have a large roosting flock of these in our local park.

It's been a long break since I've posted - work has been crazy! Still I managed to get a trip in down to London's Wetland Centre and another to Rainham Marshes. Both were very productive.

 

The Grey Heron of Europe and Africa are the same (Ardea Cinerea) so this doesn't count.

281. Sand Martin, London Wetland Centre, 23/4

 

There are plenty of these birds nesting at the LWC but (quite rightly) you're not permitted to get close to their nesting area so it's all long range photography.

292. Redshank, Rainham Marshes, 16/6

 

Not the most naturally setting but this was one of my target species and I could only see them on the cow fences.

293. Skylark, Rainham Marshes, 16/6

 

A classic EBC but I don't think that I will get another shot at this bird. I'm not 100% but I think this is a Skylark - you can just about see the crest.

294. Eurasian Oystercatcher, Rainham Marshes, 16/6

 

More EBC's. The tidal flats of the Thames are a good spot to see these birds near London but it's hard to get close given the typography of the marshes.

297. Reed Bunting, Rainham Marshes, 16/6

 

These are a real highlight of Rainham Marshes. I've never seen so many in such a small area.
