Interestingly I did spot a distinctive looking Carrion Crow across one of the fields, although distantly (hence poor quality pic). The majority of it's primaries were white, but it was the only bird like this in the flock of about 20. I've heard that crows often get whitening on primary feathers as they become worn, but I wondered why only this individual seemed to be affected?
I counted 94x Greylag Geese and 2x Greylag-Canada Goose hybrids feeding in the fields close to the East malling-Ditton footpath. I had seen about half this number come in to land on Streamside Lake at New Hythe yesterday while waiting for a Bittern to appear. It made me wonder if these the East Malling birds coming into roost for the night, as I'd heard the Canada/Barnacle Geese flock has been seen flying over St. Martins Square, Larkfield which lies directly between the 2 sites.
