From here we drove down to the viewing mound to turn around, as we pulled in this is what we saw in the ditch on the left.
Like many fly tippers is it really too much trouble to dispose of their crap like decent people do, it just goes to show what scum bags there are out there. IF they feel they must do it, they could at least
leave it on the side of the road so that it can be collected easily. Is this what it has come down to now, virtually everywhere you go to now it can be found. Jokingly, is that it annoyed me because there wasn't anything that was of use to me, even if there was, how was I going to get it......typical.
On the way back was half a dozen Reed Bunting, 4 male, 2 female, then to my surprise I saw a bird that I was very happy to see and that was a male WHEATEAR. I managed to get a couple of pictures of it, but not being that close wasn't easy, after cropping it etc on here it didn't turn out as good as I hoped it would, still it a record shot for me.
This Wheatear was half way up the hill going towards the main road, on the right where the five bar gate is among lots of wood, there is a tall metal pole there.
The other birds worth looking at was 4 Marsh Harrier on the thermals and another being mobbed by a Common Buzzard.
Here is a few random pictures that I took earlier this year that I didn't post.
This is the old Sheppey crossing that seem to take for ages to come down.
Couple of Starling shots.
And finally a poor attempt at a male Marsh Harrier in flight. I admire people who can get pictures of birds in flight.
Bird Of The Day is easy, seeing as I wasn't there long enough to have a good look around, I can only go for the ** WHEATEAR.**
