Walking up from tetrad TQ92A west into TQ82VÂ on Sunday morning. A Cormorant was fishing in the quite small River Tillingham, and later we watched a female Marsh HarrierÂ flushing Pheasants from a distantÂ arable field across the valley. Plenty of Fieldfares now, with the occasional Redwing, and a couple of BullfinchesÂ along the ancient lane through orchards, lined with beech trees and stacks of logs, up to the secluded and peaceful Peasmarsh Church. Mike Prince took the photo, just before briefly seeing a Stoat beside theÂ track. Nearly back in Rye, Meadow Pipit and Reed Bunting were ‘new’ for TQ92A. But no Firecrests this time!
