29th November – marsh harrier hulking in spindly tree…

Opalescent light across the estuary at Rainham marshes as the fog lifts. My good friend Sophie’s a welcome change from lone excursions; we chat & look, flipping from plants to birds & back.

In a spindly tree, a marsh harrier hulks, then lifts on oblong wings. A second tracks the line of pylons.

High above, a peregrine surveys.
