Friday June 2nd

A very brief visit to New Hythe this morning between 06.30 and 07.00. Weather was very cloudy with light drizzle.

A Cuckoo called as I parked my car and I watched a Blue Tit taking food to it’s nest in the top of the ‘Public Footpath’ sign by the Water Works.

I altered my usual walk as time was limited and I walked down towards Brook House. The only Nightingale I heard was singing loudly but remained hidden as I walked the path to Brook House. A Garden Warbler was singing and showed very well in the top of a bush and a Reed Warbler was also in full song in the ditch.

Apart from Whitethroat, 30 or so Swift and a fly past Kingfisher there was nothing else of note.


On my way home from work around 5.30 (well it is Friday!) I drove along the bridleway behind Birling where I live. This area is good for Spotted Flycatcher but I couldn’t find any today. I did however watch this Little Owl catch a mouse and fly up into a tree next to a Wood Pigeon to eat it. Apologies for the quality of the picture as it is quite heavily cropped.


Also 2 Turtle Dove and a 2 Red Legged Partridge. This is only about 2 miles from New Hythe but in all my time watching there I have never seen Little Owl or red Legged Partridge and Spotted Fly only once – guess that shows the importance of habitat.
