I went on the Sunday Stroll at RSPB Rainham yesterday. I last went in the winter of 2012 so was very excited to see what was there during springtime :)
It was a fantastic day, the sun shone, the birds sang and our guides were very good, we learnt lots about the folklore surrounding plants and birds as well as medicinal uses. We saw Marsh Harriers, Bearded Tits, Willow Warblers, Swallows etc etc, heard a Cuckoo and loads of Marsh frogs.
There were however loads of flies around! I thought I’d end up looking like my painting of this lady with butterflies in her hair but with fly’s wings instead!
I made a short video about the trip here.
And here are more photos
