A brilliant afternoon on the River Stour, Essex

Waders and wildfowl in the afternoon sun
High tide was at 12.27 yesterday and it was quite high. Winter numbers of Dunlin and Knot are really beginning to build up now. There were also good numbers of Pintail and some Black-tailed godwits. The light here is fantastic and so convenient for viewing and photography. Just park your car on Mistley Walls and take a stroll up and down the footpath.
