Wednesday 3rd January

Last day before I go back to work.....I was on duty with the kids today but did managed to drag my 4 year old and 1 year old out for a stroll/push. I parked by Alders Lake on Lundsford Lane. A female Goldeneye was on the lake with good numbers of Gadwall (c15). We walked past Tesco Lake which held c200 BH Gull and a few LBB, Herring and 2 Common Gull. We did add one new bird to the New Hythe year list as 3 Greenfinch settled briefly in an Alder.

Back out at the weekend.......

Hi Steve. I am a disabled birder,aged 51 and have lived at Halling for 5 years now and go to the lakes birding as often as I can, but can you please tell me where you call Millstream Lake and the Waterworks,for parking.Just a thought but how about putting a map of the lakes on your blog. Good to have a regular update of whats about at Hew Hythe. The old website hasn't changed in years. If you want to email me my address is
Good Birding. Ken.

Thanks for both of your replies! Nice to know someone reads this. Phil, I obviously know Springfield Road as I sometimes park there to have a scan of what i call Motorway Lake.

Ken, there is a map on the KOS web site (under the NW Kent sightings page) If you can't find it let me know and I will email it to you.

Thanks again....Steve
