Sevenoaks

Sevenoaks  Wildlife Reserve was the venue for our Tuesday walk this month and although the traffic was quite bad, 14 of us met up near the tea bar.   Whilst some watched a kingfisher from the nearby hide, others enjoyed a relaxing cup of tea whilst listening to chiffchaff, robin, blackbird and blackcap (amongst others).

At last a lovely bright sunny day without the need for all the thermals and layers. My usual weekly wander took me to Bossenden Wood this week. We parked in a side road and as we donned the walking gear there were lots of birds enjoying feeders and shelter in a nearby garden. First off […]

As the weather was still cold and snow lay on the ground we decided to try a local walk again this week.    We started off at Cobham, near the Mausoleum.   Blue Tit and Great Tit were the most numerous birds we encountered at first, along with some Crows and a couple of Green […]
