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.

Bright sunny conditions with light winds were not conducive to the arrival of migrants and it was hard work at times today, however we ended up with reasonable numbers, in part due to Richard's coverage of Otty Bottom. Day totals included; three Wheatears, three Whinchats, three Redstarts, 34 Blackcaps, seven Lesser Whitethroats, 10 Common Whitethroats, three Reed Warblers, one Grasshopper Warbler, four Chiffchaffs, four Willow Warblers, and 38 Yellowhammers. Overhead there were two Tree Pipits and two Yellow Wagtails while Richard had a Dotterel fly over the village. Gerald, Jack, Richard & Brendan
