foggy early on,later clear and warm.(river low).

Birds seen - Greylag 5,Mallard 10,Moorhen 5,Great Black-backed Gull 2,Herring Gull 3,Black-headed Gull 35,Common Gull 2,Cormorant 2,Lapwing 2 along the river,with 30 flying N,Kestral 1,Cetti`s Warbler 2,Meadow Pipit 2,Kingfisher 2,Oystercatcher 2.Mallard 10,Teal 5.

The new  Medway river crossing which comes off the A228 at Halling.Cutting along the southern edge of the reserve before crossing the river over to the Wouldham/Burham side is coming on at pace.When its completed we can look forward to more expensive housing which only people flocking out of London can afford and then having the A228 clogged up with them commuting back and forth.Boy,am I glad I was born when I was!.

Yet more scrub habitat lost,which before this all started,held good numbers of breeding Nightingales.
