This is an attempt to share some of the sightings of birds and various other wildlife that can be seen around the National Trust property here at Sissinghurst in Kent, plus some accounts of trips further afield.

Finally a post!!
After nearly two weeks of man flu! and some poor weather in the mornings, I got out this morning for an hour and it was a beautiful morning. I didn't see a lot, about a dozen SKYLARK came up from the field, while this years piglets decided to follow me thinking I had their breakfast. FIELDFARE, REDWING, REDPOLL and SISKIN were around in small numbers and a male SPARROWHAWK drifted low over the trees in the lovely early light. The new pond did have 2 MALLARD on it, again the light illuminated the drake wonderfully, I don't think my photo does it justice but it was worth a go. (click for larger image)
Hopefully I'll get a decent walk in at the weekend or another look at Hemsted.
