A four hour stroll in the Park produced a haul of 51 species, including three new for the year. First up was a Coal Tit in Reservoir Wood. Excellent start I thought to myself, and then discovered whilst trying to photograph it that dropping my camera yesterday on Southend Pier hadn't been the "close one" I had thought it to be. Piss.
Dumped the camera back home and carried on round, best of the rest were a pair of Kingfisher on the Roding, and a Grey Wagtail near the Old Sewage Works. New total 66 or 61.68%.
