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.
