Weekend in Essex

As the post title suggests I spent the weekend in Essex. Both mornings were spent at Foulness island a private MOD site. A pleasant couple of days birding, we saw a few bits and pieces including a Spoonbill (sleeping as they always seem to do) and a very late Tundra Bean Goose, both of which were year ticks. Also present was a small trickle of Yellow wagtails and 2 Med gulls, apart from that migration was pretty slow due to a strong North Easterly with a few chiffchaffs and a single whitethroat.
If anybody reading this is living in South East Essex and would like to have access to Foulness Island; a really fantastic place to bird, with an impressive list of rarities please check out the following website more members are being accepted to help out with the WeBS counts.
