Tuesday 12th August and a little bit of spare time in the evening found me turning left out of the hospital instead of the usual right. I was then faced with a worse than usual Dartford Tunnel traffic jam probably caused by them taking a quid or more off all the punters making them have to stop! If we didn't stop to pay our duties the traffic would keep flowing!!
Anyway, a detour through scenic Dartford and onto Thames Road to track down Thamemead and it's golf course. As usual I managed to get lost but eventually found that large body of water called the River Thames and after a short wait with other fellow birders enjoyed good views of the moulting sum plum White-winged Black Tern, my sixth in the Thames Estuary and 16th in the UK. It was also a good opportunity to sap up the local sights and enjoy the view of this part of the Thames!!
