The last week has included a trip to dungeness with Pete Wells where we saw the goldeneyes from the firth hide, a walk over the cliffs to st margarets which provided my first swallow of the year as well as three black redstarts a firecrest at fan bay and a raven cruising along  the cliff edge,and a day of being the lone ranger at samphire hoe.It was an inclement tuesday but a brief interlude allowed a quick scout round to find five black redstarts several chiff chaffs and four stonechats.Imentioned last week about the rook coming to the garden ,well I managed to get a photo through the kitchen window,just look at the size of the bill,quite a weapon?. Ialso had a jay come down on to the lawn this week so I only need raven and chough for a full set of uk crows in my garden,anyone got a dead sheep?

  1. What a superb and informative source of natural history information - unfortunately it seems we wont be able to enjoy Phils report from his trip to the Coto Donana, owing to the shower of fairy dust presently over the country!!
