Glyn Evans walked the north side of the Pyefleet from the Strood to the country park on Monday 19th, taking this selection of photos along the way.
These pictures of the colourful male wigeon were taken on the park's grazing fields.

The lapwing or green plover, sporting its crest on the head.

A young brent goose showing the faint neck collar and the lines of white edging on the folded wings.

The flock of brent geese ready to fly with their heads up.

Five fledged mute swan cynets out for a swim in the river. Not a local Mersea family.

An obliging female stonechat perched on a post.

A corn bunting trying to hide in this bare bush.

This common seal swimming up the Pyefleet, may be the one pictured in the previous posting, after it clambered onto the saltmarsh at Maydays.
