Sunday 27.05.12 NHGP
A Fantastic sunny day so a early start to avoid the heat. The sunken marsh produced the first Turtle Dove of 2012 on the wires and purring away. A Fox was sunning himself on the far bank of the medway and on the return at the causeway path another Fox stepped out of the undergrowth in front of me with a full grown rabbit in his mouth. A few seconds where we both did not move then he scampered off into the undergrowth. On to Holborough where another two Turtle Doves could be heard but not seen. Area was full of Dog walkers all getting out before the sun got too hot. The Holborough stream looked very inviting for a paddle. Did not enter the marsh to check for Orchids but none could be seen from the path.
