Seasalter, Graveney Marshes

Brenda and I drove to Seasalter this morning and walked Nell. Tide was high, so Nell enjoyed swimming for a short while in an area where there was no risk of disturbing any roosting birds.

As the tide started to turn, we walked along Graveney Marshes knowing that there had been recent sightings of Russian White-fronted Geese (9) and Snow Bunting (1). On returning to the car, parked near the yacht club, the Ring-necked Parakeet that has frequented the area for a short while was heard and showed briefly.

News this morning before work of 4 Tundra Bean Geese together in a field near the Millfield estate in Faversham, near Faversham Creek. Popped down prior to my first business meeting of the day and enjoyed good views along with a couple of other local birders.

Samphire Hoe, Kent.

 Brenda and I having decided to not visit Kingsdown further up the coast last Sunday to avoid the expected large groups of people were fortunate that the CRAG MARTIN was still present along the coast almost a week later! 

Having managed to catch up the with the bird on Tuesday myself over an extended lunch break from work, we were pleased to have a further opportunity to see the bird as Brenda having been teaching all week was unable to join me on that visit,

Social distancing was no problem today and it was wonderful weather to enjoy the bird for a couple of hours among a small number of visiting birders, many good friends among them.
