Saturday 2nd January

Back over the ground I covered for the Atlas TTV (just W of Wateringbury) with my family today. A lovely crisp day, with a hard frost. There were more birds on the move tha when I visted on the 31st Dec, and I was glad to see another Marsh Tit amongst a flock of other Tits (Long-tailed, Great, Blue and Coal).

We visted St Michael's Church, East Peckham which holds some fantastic memorials and gravestones if you're in to that sort of thing (if only I could read Latin)!
Lots of interesting Lichen on the stones and branches, but that's a whole new discipline to get into, probably save that one for retirement!
On the walk back I was pleased to see 2x Common Buzzard soaring high overhead.

I was watching those Buzzards from my bedroom window Adam. Could do with them over my patch :-)

Hi Warren

I'll be careful what I do up on that hill now I know someone's eyeballing me from Pittswood! Leave a couple of dead rabbits and I'll sure they'll pay you a visit (it'd be interesting to know how those people in Stokenchurch attract them to their bird tables). Thought I had three at one point, but can't be certain. Lovely walk though.
