More from Hoo.

So yesterday's survey was completed in glorious sunshine for me and Mo, which makes a nice change as the Hoo peninsula can be raw and blustery place.

A high tide survey which saw an increase in both Lapwing and Wigeon on the previous month and Golden Plover also building up.

On private land i picked up a single Woodlark which i also had on last months transit, and a bonus Lap bunt that flew around calling, with both birds being the host of a small Skylark flock.

Marsh Harrier were in good numbers and both Peregrine and Merlin were seen causing havoc, Common Buzzard, Sparrowhawk and Kestrel completed the raptor list.

Good numbers of Beardies from the ditches and a single Corn Bunting on rough ground were also noted.
