Sunday 17th January

Off patch today, with the thaw almost complete we braved Knole Park, Sevenoaks with the kids. Nothing much out of the ordinary - masses of Jackdaws, Meadow Pipit and 8 Ring-necked Parakeets - except the fantastic evidence left by a Fallow Deer, presumably drinking from an iced up pool! Just after we left the park a superb male Sparrowhawk sped through the surrounding woodland. Some fantastic lichens on the decaying Oaks as well.

Excellent lichen shot and brilliant pattern on the ice! Well done with finding the badger tracks the other day!
