Something different today. A grasshopper that I spotted on Canvey today on the RSPB West Marshes site. I am quite pleased with this one as he is less than 1 inch long in real life!
I saw a flock of Birds that I did not recognise on my walk at Canvey West Marsh a couple of weeks ago. Asking around it seems that they are Lapwings.
Here are some photos I took last Friday afternoon. I was walking in the RSPB reserve at Canvey West Marshes and through the trees I saw this Buzzard hunting in the reeds. I was so luck being in the right place at the right time.
Had a lovely walk around the RSPB site at Canvey West Marshes today, not a lot of bird activity as the lakes were very low, but spotted this Bumble Bee gather some Autumn nectar.
A flock of Pochard ducks landing on the lake at the RSPB Canvey West Marsh reserve with a Shoveler duck on the bank. It was very cold and windy on this day, but it was great to see the ducks around the lake. there were several different flocks there.
