May 5th (New Hythe)

Overcast this morning,less wind.
A quick walk around the Sunken marsh ( produced my first TURTLE DOVE of the year which came across the river from Burham and went down in the marsh,a single Oystercatcher flying up the river and 2 Cuckoo.
A little later during the morning I looked in on the west scrub and heard 1 Willow Warbler.


  1. Hi Alan.
    Great bird to find, the Turtle Dove, it's a shame there are not that many around these days.

  2. Hi Ken,yes I agree,I couldn`t find a Yellow Bunting at Halling this morning,they were breeding only last year.
