Thursday 7th August
Ross had come up with the goods again. A phone call in the afternoon informed me he had seen a Common Sandpiper strolling around the edge of Bradbourne House lake, East Malling at lunchtime. I made my way down there, and sure enough, there it was....as easy as that! Only the second record of this species at this location (that we know of). 50+ Canada Geese sat in the shade of Plane trees and a adult Little Grebe bobbed along on the lake.
