Not many waders around, did not cover it all so likely missed some birds.Only 3 Ringed Plover and 2 Oystercatchers showing on the mud along with 42 Shelduck.Yellow Wagtail over with Sparrowhawk and Kestrel having a domestic squabble over the grassland, pity I could not have got closer, light was good.

Prevoius to this as I was driving in from Hornchurch, I located a Peregrine on prey up on a pylon.From what I could see, it looked like a feral pigeon.The peregrine was quite large, and had a 'sharper ' forehead from the bill so very likely a female.
