Black winged stilt, Essex, Basildon

Rare black winged stilts seen at Bowers Marsh, Basildon

In Blog by admin

A pair of black winged stilts have been seen at Bowers Marsh, between Pitsea and Benfleet. The rare waders were spotted from the RSPB reserve by bird watchers.

There were hopes the bird population may move into Essex and nest following RSPB breeding programmes in Kent and Norfolk.
