A quick 90 minute stroll around the sheep pasture and paddocks of Migrant Alley this morning proved well timed, as I was there to witness a flyover SNIPE (61), good to add this species to the Month / Year list. I also recorded my first YELLOWHAMMER (62) of the year, just one was sitting in the hedgerow that borders the Greenhouse Grounds with Migrant Alley, plus I saw the KESTREL pair sitting together on one of the greenhouses.

A quick look over at the Ashes Lane fields was worthwhile, as hoped, the LAPWING were still present, although only 7 of them today.

Before I set off for my walk, I sat and waited for the REDWING to come and feed on the apples I have staked out in my garden, there was just enough light hitting the branches for a few decent images :-)

Hi Warren, I haven't been on your blog for ages but have found you again after a bit of a search on KOS new web site. I love reading your blog as I use to live in Hadlow some years ago and it's interesting to read about your sightings. I don't get much me time and find it hard to get out there so reading your blog is the next best thing. Keep up the good and interesting work!
Regards, Richard
