Little Owl I read through a tweet by my good Birdwatcher friend Neil the whereabouts of a Little Owl south of Warehorne on the Romney Marshes. As I had to pop down to the RSPB Shop at Dungeness I detoured around the Marshes and was lucky enough to get a good pose whilst the beautiful […]

Caspian Gull RSPB Dungeness

With the weather being cold one day, mild the next, wet the next and windy the next, the Birds seem to be in a constant state, maybe like us humans, in constant confusion as to if it’s December or Spring ! Caspian Gull RSPB Dungeness The main Reserve area was very active with Waders and […]

Yellow Wagtail

Yellow Wagtails I’d heard the Yellow Wagtails had returned for the warmer months a few days back and knowing how they tend to mix on Cattle grazing pasture to begin with, made the trip down to Scotney Farm, just outside Lydd, with a view of getting some easier photos than in Summer when they tend […]

Gulls taking off on Dungeness Beach

As with any great birdwatching place, Dungeness can often be a little hit and miss and today, for me anyway, was one of those days. I started off at RSPB in hope of getting a photograph of the now two Long Eared Owls. Needless to say, not even one was there! Rather than doing my […]

Male Bearded Tit
