Friday 21st November

Fieldfare numbers have increased massively over the last week and today io had my first count over 100 on the Research Station site. A few Redwings were peppered amongst the flocks feeding on fallen apples. A quick sortie to Bradbourne looking for Firecrest didn't was unsuccessful, not even a Goldcrest! However the Tawny Owl looked content roosting in it's usual place a couple of Little Grebe dipped around the edge of Bradbourne Lake.

LATE NEWS: One of the glasshouse staff flushed a Woodcock in Scotts Field on the Research Station site this afternoon. An unusual record for site but not as unusual as the one reported in John Cantelo's garden in the centre of Canterbury as well today!

Woodcock would be a nice addition to my patch list Adam. Mind you that Tawny Owl wouldn't be bad either, I still havn't had one this year.
