Redstarts in abundance

Went back to rainham riverside today to try to get better photos of the Redstarts.
There seem to be 3/4 there,definately 2 Females and a male but i think theres a second male as the one today,looked slightly different in markings to the one yesterday,but i am no expert so will leave that decision upto the proffesionals until i see them together lol
A lovely day,warm,up to around 18-19c and a few insects and butterflies were out,shame its going to get colder again,hopefully the next couple of days can stay warm and the coming coldspell isnt too long.
Had a nice walk over the Western edge of the Marsh,again without touching the actual RSPB Site,plenty of decent birding is to be had away from the reserve.
Photos below of some of the stuff we saw,a great day spent with the likes of Ron Colson,Dave Cornwell,James Astley,Denis Tuck,Alan Shearman,Chris,Trevor Oakley,John Ainsworth to name a few,if i have forgotten anyone,sorry.
A good days birding.
Other highlights not captured on camera or too poor shots to post are 2 Short Eared Owls,Marsh Harrier x 2,Buzzard,Peregrine,redshank,curlew and decent flocks of Linnets,Goldfinch,Starlings etc
