A bright male yellow wagtail perched up nicely along the footpath in East Mersea between Shop Lane and Meeting lane on Wed 8th, photographed by Martin Cock.

The short-eared owl was showing well again on the Rewsalls marshes near Coopers Beach on Wednesday, pictured by Martin.

The short-eared owl has now been present for about three weeks now.
Also seen in the area was the little owl chick in a tree near the Youth Camp entrance and a cuckoo.

This male reed bunting was photographed singing by Andy Field along the Strood seawall on Sunday 12th.

The female reed bunting has a brown head instead of a black head like the male has.

Several reed warblers can be heard singing from the reedbeds along the Strood, here photographed by Andy.

Sedge warblers have become harder to find now they have stopped singing, this one found by Andy along the Strood dyke.
Other birds noted in that area were a little tern, corn bunting and a yellow wagtail.
