Friday 24th February 2012

Needing some fresh air to combat my jet-lag I followed a tip off that the Great White Egret was still present in nearby East Peckham.  I was lucky as well as seeing the Great White Egret (distantly) with 3x Little Egrets and a Grey Heron, I also saw a drake Smew, 2x Treecreeper, 8x Lapwing, 1x Grey Wagtail.  Not bad for an hour's stroll!  On the way home I also find a Mediterranean Gull and 6x Stock Dove amongst 190+ Black-headed Gulls that were following the plough N of Teston Corner - both new species for the West Farleigh/Teston tetrad.

I tried to find that Smew Adam, but it had gone :-( Just saw the Little Egret and Green sandpiper, with a few Teal of note.
