Not your usual Essex birds…

The Chase Nature Reserve had an open day / fayre / fun run today. I flaked out on my resolution to run in the race this year but I went along for the fayre and to take photos.

The lovely weather saw a good turnout and there were several displays from the rangers, local art clubs, bee keepers, the emergency services and a falconry display team. Amazingly it was possible to get a cold drink for less than a quid (60p) and an ice cream for less than two-quid (£1.20) – something I doubt will be possible at next month’s Town Show.

The Dagenham Post photographer was doing sterling work capturing the sweaty masses crossing the finishing line – I turned my lens to more majestic sights.
