Saturday 4th December

Another quick sortie down the River Medway west of Barming Bridge at first light.  A bleak scene if I ever I saw one (well perhaps not as bleak as Sheppey has been!) , but at least it wasn't as cold as a few days ago.

I was rewarded with 5x Snipe, 4x Lapwing, Sparrowhawk, Chaffinches and Redwings and masses of Pheasants in the old orchard on the West Farleigh side of the river....oh a couple of diesel engines, the first movement on the railway line 3 days!

Masses of Goldfinches on the teasels on the last stretch home - unfortunately only remained when I took the picture!

Then I enjoyed the last of the snow before the big thaw set in - it's amazing what you can do with a couple of ice-cream tubs and a wallpaper scraper!
