Birdwatchers spotted more than they bargained for when musician Billy Bragg swooped in for a cuppa at RSPB Rainham Marshes.
Howard Vaughan, a keen twitcher and tour guide, caught a glimpse of the singer-songwriter in the cafe at the nature reserve.
The Barking-born Bragg then happily posed for a photo with 104-year-old reserve visitor Grace Salter.
Mr Vaughan said: “He popped in for a cup of tea and a piece of cake and said he’d come back for a walk around at some point.
“He was a very amenable chap, sitting there with his guys talking about music.”
