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.

A bit of a clear out had occurred overnight with just three Yellow-browed Warblers remaining at the Monument, McSwiggan's and Empty Wood, 10 Chiffchafffs and two Blackcaps. The only other birds of note were a Short-eared Owl and a Bonxie which flew along the clifftop before heading North. A few finches went over including two Greenfinches, along with about 150 Swallows and 70 House Martins. Two Brambings were seen in the Wood. In what seems to be a dreadful autumn for Goldcrests, two in Badgers Bottom Wood were noteworthy.
