Wildlife Event May 2010

Canvey West Marshes

Canvey Island’s first Wildlife Event held at the newly opened West Canvey Marshes was a great success. Put on by the RSPB and Canvey’s Town Council the event proved very popular with┬álocal people. Several hundred visited the site and all seemed very happy with what they saw. Here are just a few pictures and observations from the day.

Lots of activities were laid on, including pond dipping

Something for everyone

If you preferred to get away from the crowds what better place

One very rare shy animal was seen skulking about the Marquees. I was lucky to snap a picture before it disappeared into the undergrowth.

  • Glad you enjoyed the Canvey Wildlife Day. The Essex Wildlife Trust had intended to organize pond-dipping, but we found that the dykes available were too new to provide many animals, so this was cancelled. However, if this is repeated, then they should provide a rich resource next year.
