Heading back from Northfleet at the end of day’s work I decided to pop in on Bough Beech reservoir in the hope of catching some passage migrants.

I managed to make out the incessant chattering of my first swallow, but I didn’t spot a single wader.

Looking out across the water there was no evidence of terns, just a plethora of Cormorants, Coots, and the odd gull.

At the Winkhurst Green end of Bough Beech the little lagoon was full to bursting.  Scores of beeches had “tidal” marks on their trunks.

Scanning the horizon I hoped to spot a Buzzard, but birds of prey were conspicuous by their absence.

I wonder how long we’ll wait before swifts course around the steeple at Ide Hill?
