Thursday 5th April PM
Another visit today for an hour 4-5pm. Warm and sunny.
A male Orange Tip flew past as I walked past the scrape, I also saw 1+ Comma and a single Slow Worm. 1 Blackcap in song, 1 Mistle Thrush and 1 Green Woodpecker.
I have set up this blog to record my bird and general wildlife sightings in the 5 mile radius of my home. This includes my local patch - New Hythe/Leybourne Lakes. This is an inland area of West Kent, a few miles from Maidstone. I rarely stray more than a few miles from this area these days. I live in a village called Birling which is at the foot of the North Downs and about 1.5 miles from New Hythe.
