Saturday 6th March

I am finding it difficult to find the time to get out at the moment....highlights of the last couple of weeks are lots of Common Buzzard seen in the area - 2 over Wrotham (1st) , 1 Ryarsh (6th) , 1 Detling Hill and virtually daily from the M25 near Clacketts Services. Also a Tawny Owl calling from Birling Churchyard on the 2nd and Little Owl calling near my house nightly.

Driving past New Hythe today I saw a large bird over the trees near the Water Works - I pulled in quickly and grabbed my camera to get a record shot of a Bittern.....apologies for the quality! - but at least I got a snap!

Hello Steve.
Great shot on the run. Not just any old bird, either.Well done. I will have to spend more time looking up and hope I see 1 or 2 Common Buzzards flying over Halling.

Steve,nice shot,even though it must have been hurried.I ringed a Tristis Chiff at N H,in the winter of 1993,their call is also different.
