Monday 22nd February
Round Bradbourne Lake, East Malling (Private site) again at lunchtime - in the pouring rain! I was searching out the Green Sandpiper that had been reported again yesterday afternoon, but no luck today. A Little Egret took off from the western edge of the lake as I walked across the cricket field, and a Grey Heron stood statesque on the opposite bank. A couple of inquisitive Goldcrests checked me out, but didn't linger long enough to be photographed. A small flock of Redwings 'seeped' in a nearby Holly tree. Fieldfares are still in evidence on the research station site but feeding almost exclusively on the rain-sodden fields now.
