As the news of a local red necked grebe in Roding valley meadows NR come out
Not many local birders could resist 
And who could blame them ,what a great looking bird and although it could of been closer I was more than happy to see it .

Wryneck at Kessingland

On a weekend break at Kessingland and hoping something in the area would turn up.
Then the day I arrive Wryneck was on the cards.
With only a 5 minute walk to where the bird was seen I had every chance of seeing it but of cause it is never that simple.
4 visits before I connected but didn't mind due to the 5 minute journey and it showed very well.

It was a dull cloudy day but being local to Southend on a mid week job I thought i would pay a visit,On the drive along near Rossi ice cream parlour I spotted a adult med gull in all its glory . I drove on to gunners park where there was some wader action and more med gullls. Shame the light was so poor.
