New Hythe,November 24th.

During the afternoon between 1500-1600,I popped down to the Streamside lake to try for the Bittern.Although I had no luck with the Bittern,which was not surprising in such windy conditions, I did have two sightings of the Kingfisher and saw a nice Grey Wagtail that dropped down onto the small island which is just in front of the reed bed.I also had a quick look at the west scrub which produced 20+ Fieldfare,2 Green Woodpecker and a Kestral.

During the morning I walked over to the river where a female Sparrowhawk put up a mixed flock of Wood Pigeons and Stock Doves,the Stock Doves numbered at least 20,which is the most I have seen in the lakes area for many years.
