SOMETIMES it is enough to stand and stare at the beautiful landscapes. One of the best places to do this is down at the RSPB centre on Rainham Marshes. The area is a wonder to behold.
It is the combination of bird sanctuary, london glowing in the distance and thames life. Added to that is the dramatic architecture of the centre itself as well as the well-stocked cafe.
At this time of year, the most important message is to think of our feathered friends. Howard Vaughan just asks if you can make sure there is water in the garden as well as some food for them.
