Another trip to see the Slavonian Grebe

With Sunday AM free I couldn't go too far today. Shaun had not seen the showy Slav Grebe at Dartford, Kent, so we thought we'd start there and see what happens. The grebe again showed amazingly well down to probably 12 feet. Also again seen were ring Necked Parakeet, and a small number of Redpoll.

After 20 minutes with the bird, the heavens opened so it was time to leave. We looked for the Bittern on the bigger lake but again no joy.

We spent the next 90 minutes looking for Firecrest at Dagenham Chase LNR (No sign), then we tried find Waxwings in Collier Row and Harold Hill, but we couldn't track them down. I was back in doors by 11.30am, brownie points bagged!
