▷ Rainy Rainham

June’s Birdwatching Group outing was to one of our favourite RSPB reserves at Rainham on the Thames estuary. Visiting on such a rainy day at least meant we had the trail and hides pretty much to ourselves. And the birds still had to come out in the rain to keep their growing families fed. Nice weather for ducks, frogs and snails, it turned out, if not very good for photography!
