Sheppey Snow Buntings

A bright dry morning, so we ventured to Barton's Point on the Isle of Sheppey and was pleased to locate 7 Snow Buntings feeding in the area. Soon after we looked on the sea off at Leysdown where we counted over 70 Great Crested Grebes and 2 Red-throated Divers. In the fields, there were 520 Brent Geese. Following a scrummy apple slice from a Leysdown bakery each, we stopped in at Capel Fleet and from the raptor viewing mound located 4 Marsh Harriers, 1 Merlin, 2 Common Buzzards, 1 Little Egret and a distant 'escape' Harris Hawk.
