This morning started well - a crisp morning, graced by this immaculate steam engine passing through Barming (35017 Belgian Marine).
I had hoped to get up to Sheppey this afternoon, but circumstances conspired against me, so I stayed local (ish) and made a long overview visit to Burham Marshes. All fairly quiet on the bird front until this Raven flapped lazily by! There were a supporting cast of Redshank, Teal, Little Grebe and Lapwing but not much else. The late afternoon light was fantastic and it was good to spend the rest of afternoon of a couple of fellow birders (Les Foster and other half and springer spaniel!).
