This major local bird was a grip back following the small flock seen nearby about three years ago during a nationwide influx. This bird was initially seen very distantly on Bowers Marsh from the Crematorium on the hill before it moved to the scrape at Wat Tyler where it showed a lot better though still a struggle for the camera, not much more than record shots here.
