A few recent pics

The new patch continues to produce new birds, 4 GADWALL were new on Wednesday this week when there were 2 GREENSHANK, 2 GREEN SANDS and a COMMON SAND, unfortunately my visit was just 20mins so who knows what else was around. Sunday morning I added MEADOW PIPIT as the autumn the first signs of autumn movement for this bird, there were also 3 YELLOW WAGS, 2 GREEN SANDS, COMMON SAND, 3 EGYPTIAN GEESE, at least 3 KINGFISHERS and loads of CHIFFCHAFF, I tried hard but couldn't find any Pied Flys or anything else different. Also added Sunday was a WATER RAIL, a bit earlier than I would expect at Sissinghurst.
Talking of which a couple of recent visits have produced SAND MARTIN, WHEATEAR plus yesterday HOBBY, YELLOW WAGTAIL and TURTLE DOVE.
Below are a few various pics from recent walks around Kent.
