Thursday 8th May
I visited from 7.45pm to 9.15pm tonight. I was hoping for Hobby but no sign. I added a Common Sandpiper to my yeat list along the Medway - i think that takes me to 93 bird species. Also 3 Cuckoo, 6+ Nightingale, good numbers of Whitethroat, Willow Warbler and Reed Warbler.
1 Grass Snake, 6 Slow Worm and a Water Vole were also seen.
