weather 26/11

Mum now gone so cleaning up after the dog.
Late afternoon sent me to Lydd to view a house so did a little drive round the usual spots a Slavonion Grebe on ARC and Curlew outside Lydd Airport then on to Littlestone Golf Club to see if SE Owls have returned but no luck looking through the mist and rain.Species 26

Friday 21/11

Another poor day for the weather and Mum still with me.
Brent Geese were seen today as well as the usual bunch, Fieldfare numbers were down to just a few sightings so the bulk must have moved on
Species was 40.
Today had to take my Mums and Sisters dogs (3) there was a dead Harbour Porpoise on the beach where 2 of the dogs rolled in this stinking mess. The smell has stuck in my house and both Mum and Sister have gone home and  have left us with the smell. .  

Tuesday 18/11

Mum still with me so still viewing from the car only. Weather was poor but birding was good.
We thought we had lost the Little Owls but today they were in their usual place. Mistle Thrush and Redwing were present and 500 + Fieldfare.. Total species 41

Tuesday 11/11

A miserable day and Mum was down for a visit and at 93 hacking around Dungeness shingle was not on the cards.
A drive round the local area was pleasant found most of the usual but some were unusual for Mum like Great White Egret / Golden Plover and the unusal geese Snow and Barnacle.
A low total of 28.
