RSPB Rainham Marsh 4/6/16

With nice weather forecast for the weekend I decided on a short trip to Rainham for just a general walk with Ramune and do some birding and didn't turn out a bad day really.On reaching the visitor center we agreed on a latte to start with,we walked anti clock wise around the reserve which took about 4 hours to complete with stopping at each hide and sitting on the various benches listening to the numerous singing Cetti's Warblers and a single pinging Bearded Tit.
A enjoyable day out and I'm sure Ramune enjoyed it too and won't be her last,a few photo's below from the day.

Beckton and Greenwich Park 24 - 4 - 16

While visiting my partner down in London we decided on making a trip to Greenwich Park for my last afternoon of the weekend.On our way to catching a train I could hear the call of Ring-necked Parakeets close by and found a couple up in the tree,so with a few minutes spare out came the camera unknowingly there was others lower down as was pointed out to me by Ramune who is not a birder but soon pointed out another 12 feeding.

After our train journey we arrived at Greenwich and enjoyed first a welcomed coffee on our short walk to the park,where I decided to have a mess around and take some photo's of Ramune,
before having a nice relaxed walk around in the sun.
