Tuesday 18th December
Nothing much at East Malling , so I popped down Leybourne Lakes. No sign of Black-necked Grebe on the Railway pit, but good numbers of Shoveler, Coot, Moorhen and neat looking Gadwall. A pair of Teal looked quite isolated on Abbeymeads, I don't think I've ever seen it numbers so thin on the water at this time of the year. No sign of the Bittern on Streamside to dusk, although Cetti's Warbler and Water Rail were both heard.
