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.

Great Grey Shrike and Waxwings

Whilst on a job at Hornchurch and Romford I jammed in two year ticks ,
The first being this cracking Great Grey Shrike from the Ingrebourne valley and a dozen Waxwings at A12 Romford which both gave great views.

This male Stonechat was still flitting about behind the garden fence in Northweald for three weeks but seems to of gone over the last few days .

We had a lot of cold foggy mornings in January. 

But also some nice cold sunny days .
