Wildlife sightings from the Bockhill area.
We are a small group of East Kent birders who have been enjoying wildlife in the St. Margaret's Bay and Kingsdown area of the White Cliffs since October 1994. Here you will find a record of the fauna and flora of this region of Kent.

I rang Jack last night and persuaded him that a seawatch this morning could be brilliant. Strong winds up the channel, good numbers of seabirds further west along the coast, overcast conditions so no problem with the light, what could possibly go wrong? We didn't make 10 species, the light was terrible and it rained just to add insult to injury. 150 Sandwich Terns, 19 of which were resting on the beach, a Curlew and a Harbour Porpoise. Not sure I will be able to convince anyone again that a seawatch is a good idea.
