Another photo from our morning at the RSPB reserve at Rainham Marshes. This Mute Swan was swimming along the edge of the river with it’s mate (out of shot) and then this duck joined the flotilla.

Just Good Friends

Just good friends.

A Mute Swan and a Little Egret on the river bank at Hullbridge, Essex.

We had a great time walking along the riverbank at Hullbridge this weekend. I took several photos of the bird life there and will post some of them over the next few days.
