Three Red-Crested Pochard were still present yesterday morning on the Stillwell lake, Ingrebourne Valley. Thanks to Les Harrison, Myself and Mo enjoyed these birds for half hour at dawn before heading off to our Kent survey site along the Hoo peninsular.
With Amazing warm weather for yesterday's survey there was plenty of Skylark and Lapwing action, with the latter in full display all over the site, which were a joy to watch.
Other wader and duck numbers were down having probably being spured on to move north with the recent mild weather.
Highlight of the day for me was this fine ringtail HEN HARRIER that I flushed from a ditch just yards away! Unfortunately the bird was always going away from me - hence the pics.....
