What a believe to be Candlesnuff fungi growing on some dead wood at Blue Bell Hill. perhaps not rare, perhaps not beautiful - but all part of life's rich learning curve for me!

26 November 2022 - Great Grey Shrike and Dartford Warblers at Hothfield Common
At my fifth or sixth attempt, I finally connected with the rather lovely Great Grey Shrike at Hothfield Common KWT. The bird was initially west of the central path - affording good views to the assembled few.
Almost as exciting...was a male Dartford Warbler in the gorse. One of up to six birds enjoying the sunshine.
I confess both species were 'photographic ticks' for me - I'm enjoying taking snaps of new species I haven't previously captured through the camera lens...

Pied Wagtails at East - 19 Nov 2022
Some unmarketable fruit is drawing in the flies and the Pied Wagtails (20+). Nice to look through and age/sex the birds...though challenging at times!

4 Nov 2022 - Sabine's Gull at Port Lympne
The first winter Sabine's Gull at Port Lympne is a stunning wee beastie! As can be seen in Barry Wright's 'people picture' below - the bird walks to within metres of the gathering onlookers!
