31st March 2017

On a breezy but warm day a Swallow passed through Kingsdown in the late afternoon. There are many Chiffchaffs singing now and a handful of Blackcaps dotted over the area.

3 Red Kites came in from the south, drifted over Kingsdown briefly and then headed off N in the early afternoon. 20 Brent Geese were on the sea just off Kingsdown.

23rd March 2017

The wind blew strong and cold from an ENE direction and unsurprisingly there was very little to see. A few Redwing passed overhead and a Chiffchaff could just about be heard. Never mind.

This time last year we were watching Firecrests in the area. There are a few around in Kent currently, hopefully it won't be long before we are enjoying these little gems.

22nd March 2017

A strong WSW wind kept the area chilly despite some sunshine.  A Swallow flew past Kingsdown this morning. A couple of Chiffchaffs were singing and a Common Buzzard drifted over.
