Tuesday 20th April

No chance to check the  local patch today but driving towards East Malling this morning I saw a lone Swallow perched on the wires opposite the North Pole Pub, Teston.  Later I stopped by New Hythe briefly and was pleased to hear a Nightingale as I stepped out the car.  A couple of minutes later I was watching it singing, out on on an exposed perch, the sun catching it's rusty-red tail...I'd forgotten how reddy/brown these little gems were.  If only I'd had a camera!

An omission from yesterday's report was the sighting of the Bald Birder briefly visting his old breeding territory before migrating North!

Hi Adam.
Well done with the sighting of the Nightingale. Isn't that always the way, when you haven't got your camera, the bird makes a appearance.

Congrats on the Nightingale. I'm still looking and listening...
