A shag was feeding off Sandgate Esplanade and I amused myself by trying to see if the bird actually left the water when diving:-
Saturday morning went waxwing hunting at Pegwell,found a flock of about 100 at Stonelees,but they stayed in tree tops until departing en masse towards Sandwich
Eventually they will have to come to my garden,but the hoardes of blackbirds are stripping the berries
very quickly,so hurry up you Bohemians,all must go.
It was good to meet up with Phil Milton again ,we all miss his colourful entries on the Planet Thanet blog,come on Gadget get it up and running again please.
I`ve had a few goldfinches munching away at the nijer seeds in the garden, a pair of blackcaps are also regular visitors.
Yesterday at the Hoe,was pretty quiet birdwise but we did attract a pair of Stonechats while we were making hay in the wintry sunshine
GREEN WOODPECKER on the cliffs.
DUNGENESS GOLDEN MOMENTS.
This morning the first snow of the winter arrived in Kent bringing the usual chaos,I stayed indoors
catching up with jobs that have been waiting awhile.
