The first outing this month was to RSPB Rainham Marshes, with my kids, the first time they've both been out with me birding! Their initial excitment of having binoculars and running along the boardwalks soon waned and we had to go for ice cream. Two raptors, Sparrowhawk and Hobby were the avian highlights.
I also visited Regents Park, close to my new job in the hope it could become a patch like Boston Public Gardens was, where I saw typical park and garden species. It's quite a large area to cover, for example, during lunch, but provides plenty of birding opportunities too.
Saturday 8th, Rainham Marshes RSPB Reserve, London, UK.
