By the end of the 3 hour walk I hadn't added a new species, but there were a few bits and pieces still to be of interest to me. Over on the lakes the KINGFISHER was seen again, while in the bankside scrub a party of at least a dozen LONG TAILED TITS were watched, with them were a few BLUE and GREAT TITS, a COAL TIT, 2 GOLDCRESTS and a CHIFFCHAFF, nearby the calls of NUTHATCH and GREAT SPOTTED WOODPECKER were heard. The adjacent Scrubby Woods had 4 BULLFINCH feeding on old Blackberry seeds, plus the odd JAY was seen, a SONGTHRUSH gave a little halfhearted song :-)
Other birds of note seen this morning were flyovers, in the form of SKYLARK and MISTLETHRUSH, but more pleasing was seeing another two FIELDFARE go over as well as a single LESSER REDPOLL.
I'll be doing a full patch walk in the morning, one last push to get the months tally up the rankings :-)
Later in the morning I had a visit to Sevenoaks wildfowl reserve, mainly to try and get a Kingfisher shot from the Willow Hide, but although I did see a Kingfisher fly past, it didn't alight on the perches provided :-( It was all bit gloomy still anyway, so maybe it was just as well. I did point the camera at a few things, but the light was all wrong and I deleted most of the stuff, but I here's a few usable images......
