    photo taken 20/10/10 so lucky to get this shot on the path outside the Swal hide, unfortunatly it was 5.30pm and the sun was behind the sea wall so light was very poor, still can't complain, great end to a great day. (equipment can-450d sig500)

    Fingers crossed, the Elmley/RSPB website saga could soon be rectified.

  • Blog Post: Not Elmley

    A friend of mine came over to the island today to do a bit of winter birding. The recent cold snap has frozen the reserve, with the result that most of the bird interest stays outside the seawall on the Swale. As a result, we decided to head elsewhere today.

The windier conditions today meant that the tide was higher than forecast and an impressive wader roost built up on the islands at Wellmarsh hide. The majority were...
  • Blog Post: More fun with cows

    Yesterday was awful. Wet, windy, yuk. I'd mentally prepared myself for a day in the office catching up with some paperwork, cd player on in the background, kettle on. Nice. And then the phone rang & it was our cattle grazier who wanted to come up to take the calves off for weaning. Did he know...

  • Forum Thread: Another Snow Bunting

    Visited Elmley on Sunday afternoon and was fortunate to get some good close ups of a Snow Bunting which was by the seawall past Southfleet turn and just before the bend to go round to the Swale Hide. When i looked back at the timings of the pictures it was actually 7 minutes that the bunting was hoping...
