Birding time was short for us today having long made plans to spend time with friends living near Norton, Faversham. Popping into Luddenham very quickly on-route resulted in seeing two Spotted Flycatchers. More surprising was seeing a further two in an orchard along the A2 while having coffee and cake!
Our day was essentially non-birding, but did involve a wonderful walk to Conyer where we had a delightful lunch outside enjoying the beautiful weather hearing Cuckoo and seeing a couple of Buzzards as we made our way.
Journeying home, we detoured via Motney Hill where still this site provides one of the few reliable sites for Turtle Dove near our home in Gillingham and we were not to be disappointed as one was quickly located singing on the telephone wires while a Cuckoo sang distantly.
