I've not been out much this last week or so hence no reports.
Last week the main problem was hangovers - first from the Kingsdown Retired Gentleman's Christmas lunch then from a ball we attended on Friday evening.
After that there was the snow with passage in and out of Kingsdown being somewhat restricted.
Today I had a couple of hours out between physio and dentist (just how lucky can one be?). I walked the track between the obs and the level crossing and as normal the hedges were full of thrushes. Redwings and blackbirds were most prevalent but there were good number of fieldfares plus several song thrush and a lone mistle thrush.
A sparrow hawk buzzed the hedge line 3 times (or 3 sparrow hawks buzzed it once) but I never saw it catch anything.
Only other birds of note was a lone tree sparrow and 2 yellow hammers.
