I had the time to do a few hours birding so where to go? High tide was around noon so with one eye on the pager, I popped over to Canvey Point to get a bit more sea watching experience. Nothing more than gulls fighting for scraps from a Leigh trawler but as the tide rose, I saw Wheatear, Ringed Plover, Dunlin an Common Tern.
As the tide fell, I went for lunch in my favourite Canvey cafe and then thought I'd dodge the rain over at West Canvey Marshes. Lots of warblers and finches, a lone Avocet...
