Due to very heavy disturbance on my patch this afternoon, very little was recorded. This sometimes happens on my patch, as it is made up up of large gardens and pockets of privately owned land, but worryingly it's getting more frequent in recent years.
Lots of the large gardens on my patch have new owners, and they are busy slashing and burning the mature growth in them, they all seemed to be out today! Also out today were the Hadlow College tree surgeon crew in the large house by the lake area. Hadlow College also had students ( I use the word Students loosely!) all over Migrant Alley doing various ''work'' in between shouting and screaming and chasing each other around!
So with all that going on what did I see ? Well the MARSH TIT was singing in the Wet Woods, the 6 CANADA GEESE were on the 3 lakes, along with the two COOTS, and the KESTREL was hunting above the Tree Nursery. A SISKIN and a MEADOW PIPIT flew over, and were noted down as potential 'last' dates.
Not a good day on the patch today!
