RSPB Rainham Marshes Sunday stroll

 Howard Vaughan, warden with TUB on a similar walk in 2012
I had a lovely Sunday morning/early afternoon co-leading a bird walk at Rainham Marshes in the company of the hugely knowledgable Howard Vaughan and up to 40 eager birders.
 Some of the crowd
We saw a lot of the usual suspects - Shelduck, Wigeon, Teal, Kestrel and Skylark along with an unexpected couple of Red Kites that materialised distantly before vanishing.
 A couple of male House Sparrows in the car park
 A flitting Chiffchaff
 The same male between bouts of singing
A distant (and fuzzy) Red Kite
