In such weather, the mornings species count was just a measly 36, with nothing much of note at all, certainly nothing for the month or year list :-(
The best on offer was the COMMON BUZZARD seen in the arable field adjacent to High House Lane, a favoured hunting place for it, there was also half a dozen SKYLARKS out there. The KESTREL pair at the Greenhouse Grounds are always a joy to watch, but the GREY WAGTAIL that was there wasn't too keen on them :-)
The LONG TAILED TIT flock was back over at the Scrubby Woods, 4 GOLDCRESTS were with them, but nothing was seen of the scarcer woodland birds today. The lakes continue to disappoint, nothing but the usual MUTE SWAN, COOT pair plus a few MALLARDS and MOORHENS were there.
Flyovers from a single YELLOWHAMMER and and two FIELDFARE were the best of what my short skywatch produced.
Later in the morning, I made a visit to Sevenoaks wildfowl reserve, I decided to have a go at getting some photo's of the White Ibis that is residing there..........well everyone else has!
I arrived as the sun was just appearing, but the Ibis was feeding in the shade most of the time, but occasionally it wandered into a brighter spot. I took 188 photo's of it and saved 17, so here's a few of the 17 :-)
