I went to whitsted gravel pits (East Peckham) this morning with Bob Bland to see the female Hooded Merganser.I hadn`t realized just how small they are.
Walking out across the farm to where the gravel pits are it was nice to see that a lot of stubble remained in the fields.This had attracted good numbers of Linnets,Goldfinch,Chaffinch and Skylarks ,at least fifty Fieldfare were also seen.

On the way back we called in at the Trout Lake,Leybourne.Bob had seen a duck on there a few days ago which he thought might have been a Scaup x Tufted Duck hybrid.However it must have moved on because all we saw on there this morning was three Tufted and the immature male Goldeneye.
