March 19th (bits and Pieces)

Roger Parker had 3 Med Gulls on Tesco lake on Monday at about 1630,they came in with the other gulls for a wash and preen.

The female Blackcap was in my garden again today (19th) and the Whooper Swan was seen during the afternoon on the streamside lake (New Hythe),still no Sand Martins.

I retrapped a Blue Tit in the garden on the 16th that was ringed in the garden as an adult bird on the 4-2 08,so its nice to know its still going strong.


  1. Hi Alan,

    I had 2 adult Med Gulls over East Malling Research on Monday at lunchtime - very vocal they were! They flew off west with a mass of BH Gulls - probably eventually finding themselves on the Tesco lake!


  2. On a quick drive past today no Sand Martin on Alders but I did see the Whooper on Tescos lake

  3. Hi Adam,March/April is a good time to find them inland,nice clean looking birds with a nice call.

  4. Hi Steve,when will you be doing your Blog,we all miss it.

  5. Hi Alan - 3 Sand Martin Tesco Lake today at 12.30 in rain. Also probable distant Med Gull
