Beluga Whale

Saturday (29/09/18) was a day of a few rare treats, we were hunting for the Beluga Whale, but it had moved further down the Thames.  Managed though to see several  Clouded Yellow Butterflies.

Then went to Tilbury Fort to track down the Beluga Whale.

I managed to see it at Coalhouse Fort on Wednesday but my dad missed it.  Only managed to get a photo with its back just about showing out of the water.

Then it was onto Rainham Marshes to find the Pectoral Sandpiper and about 45 minutes of waiting it turned up and was feeding along the waters edge.
