Monday 6th February 2012

A quick sortie across the orchards on the research station, in the snow turned up much of what had been seen on Saturday: the White-fronted Goose was still present and the Deceit of Lapwings had increased to 12.  Their footprints of the latter were found all across one of the fallow fields, indicating how they run from one exposed weed to another!

Another visitor from far materialised in the shape of John Clements, desperately trying to acclimatise from the 36.C heat of Goa to -1.C of East Malling.  Earlier in the day he had a seen Lesser Redpoll in one of the orchards and even a Snipe in the middle of Kiln Barn Road
