Yellow wagtail...Canvey? (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
So I spent a couple hours round the (obviously very popular dog walking) RSPB reserve at Canvey Wick.
Plenty to see, Peregrine, curlew, oystercatcher, little egret, green woodpecker, whitethroat, swallows, long tailed/great/blue tit etc
I went to see Yellow wagtail, and went to Saltholme the other day with similar success.

Anyone seen a yellow wagtail in S Essex or N London areas?

Yellow Wagtail is a common summer visitor to the fields and marshes in South Essex. In august onwards it's not unusual to see hundreds on the seawalls and trails at Wallasea Island RSPB reserve whilst Canvey Marshes and Canvey Wick will have smaller numbers. In spring many pass through heading north with a few pairs breeding in suitable habitat at Bowers Marsh, Canvey and Wallasea as well as various other locations.
