Swanscombe Marshes Trip Report

Nine members of the group enjoyed the delights of Swanscombe this weekend.   With windy weather forecast it was always going to be a challenge to get good views of the birds, but we managed a creditable selection of birds and plants from this excellent wildlife site.

The Isle of Sheppey - but not as you know it!

Normally the Isle of Sheppey would give rise to thoughts of Elmley, Capel Fleet and Shellness, but on this occasion we decided to take a different tack, and go for some potential migrant habitat along the north coast. We started out at Warden Point, a place I have only ever visited once before with rather […]
