201808 - Canvey Wick

Thursday 9 August 2018 visit to RSPB Canvey Wick reserve

The one summer day when to rained - all day. Relief or purgatory? Maybe somewhere inbetween.

This reserve situated near Morrisons on Canvey Island is a Site of Special Scientific Interest SSSI due to the abundance of insects, bugs and bees - many quite rare.

However, on this day the cold and wet did not induce many bugs to appear. But, we had a very pleasant amble around the reserve seeing a few birds, rabbits and interesting plants.

Our thanks to Lyn and Alan Aldridge for the photos.
