18th May. Woodchat!

A post-meeting walk around West Canvey Marsh reserve with Marc Outten to discuss the finer points of field, ditch and reservoir edge management was stopped in its tracks as we lifted our binoculars to view a bird that had just flipped up onto the fence line in front of us; a stonking Woodchat Shrike! If only all meetings could be disrupted like this.
