Rainham Marshes RSPB.Jan 14th 2009.

Penduline Tits.
Sarah and i travelled to Rainham marshes RSPB to try for the Penduline tits there. Despite the bad fog and light we were both given fantastic close views of these little gems. This was a first for both of us, and not through trying either, dipping out on previous occasions. They were actively feeding on the reed mace seeds and after gorging themselves rested up in the reedbed. I was able to grab a few record shots before the fog thickened and they departed to another area of the reserve. After a cuppa in the centre and the fog not lifting we set off both elated at our new addition.
