Sunday 4th November
VIEW OF THE MILLSTREAM LAKE
I checked the end of the Millstream for any sign of the Bittern, no sign (apart from trampled reeds) A Cettis called here and Shoveler and Gadwall were feeding close by. A large flock of Long Tailed Tit were calling around the West Scrub and a few Redwing went over as well as the first of 3 flyover Skylark. A few Goldfinch were feeding on teasel heads. GOLDFINCH
FUNGI sp SOUTH END OF ABBEY MEAD
I crossed the river and scanned the numerous Tufted Duck for anything more interesting and wandered up towards the sunken marsh. The tide on the Medway was high so I didn't check the river. A few Cormorant over and a Grey Wagtail called as it flew over. 3 more Cettis called in this area.
