Bits and Pieces


Blackcap in the garden followed in the evening with a visit to Kingsmead car park, Canterbury to see the Starling murmuration, possibly circa.4-5000 birds, quite a sight.


I went to Grove hoping to photograph the kingfisher which did not show, so after a couple of hours I went to Hampton, plenty of gadwall and teal etc..

At Hampton the usual stars were on show with the two purple sandpipers lurking about on the beach and breakwaters and the Mediterranean gull on the sea keeping company with the common and black-headed gulls. On the play park a pied wagtail was busy feeding on the grassy areas and only momentarily still for a nano second whilst I attempted a photograph. 

Having the most of the day free I went to Seasalter late pm seeing two short-eared owls over the fields.
