Group Trip to Sevenoaks KWT Reserve and Bough Beech Reservoir

Seventeen members met at the Kent Wildlife Trust Reserve at Sevenoaks. Our arrival matched the arrival of a clearer sky after a really wet start to the day. This is a reserve developed from previous gravel extraction where lakes have formed in the pits fed by the river Darent. It was noted by a number […]

Volunteer Day 5th November

An apt day to carry out what has now become our annual bonfire volunteer task.   Although light rain was falling it was not enough to damped the spirits of our hardy volunteers who gathered in the Northward Hill  car park at 9 am. We gathered the tools required, then Emily (Rspb assistant warden) assisted […]

Group trip to Rainham Marshes

Fifteen group members met at this former MOD site on a cloudy day, but wouldn’t hear the usual welcoming greeting from Howard, as he has now moved on to pastures new. That said, we were made welcome by the staff and volunteers as we entered the visitor centre which has recently been rearranged to encompass […]

Group Coach Trip to Pulborough Brooks RSPB REserve

What a wonderful day! Even while we waited at the viewing platform by the Visitor Centre for a short talk from an RSPB warden there was lots to see! Not sure what everyone else was looking at but I was watching a peregrine being mobbed by a group of crows. Fallow deer were running across […]

Group trip to Stodmarsh - 4 Sept

I have written before that Stodmarsh NNR is one of my favourite reserves and for our trip there this weekend, the conditions were perfect.  On this occasion we did an ‘anti-clockwise’ circuit, starting from the Stodmarsh car park and heading towards the Marsh hide and from there on to Grove Ferry via the David Feast […]

Group Trip to Lullingstone Country Park

Our visit to Lullingstone Country Park attracted 17 Group members, keen to enjoy the slightly cooler weather & the varied wildlife of woodland, grassland & river, all found here at Lullingstone. We began our walk by following the River Darenth and saw, as we had hoped, a grey wagtail feeding at the water’s edge. This […]
