Wednesday 8th February 2012

Checked out a couple of lakes in the East Malling area on the off chance of a Smew (or two) - Mote Park and New Hythe have both been graced in the last 2 days.  Clare Park between East Malling and West Malling was the first port of call - good to see a Grey Wagtail, but nothing else out of the ordinary.

to the research station and Bradbourne Lake, which produced 3x Teal, 12x Lapwing, Grey Heron and a flock of Black-headed Gulls, one of which had a pinkish tinge to it's breast....but no Smew!

Lots of prints in the snow.

Love the prints in the snow! That is a great photo! Definitely something you don't see around here!

Adam ,
Just for the record , which set of tracks is yours ?

Derek Faulkner said...

OK Adam, your prints are much better than mine were, were you wearing flippers.

It was definitely worth a look for Smew as they seemed to appear in several places over the last few days.
