Hooded Crow

Dungeness - warm, dry and sunny, light airs - Following a light ground frost it soon warmed up  and turned into another superb day. A circuit of the bushes from the old lighthouse to the Long Pits delivered very little apart from a few common resident species and a couple of Reed Buntings. A pair of Peregrines sat atop the pylons by the power station were also enjoying the warm sunshine.

  Whilst chatting to MC and JT news came through from the ever watchful Dave Bunney concerning a Hooded Crow that had just flown over heading towards the foreshore by the fishing boats. It was briefly relocated along with a couple of Carrion Crows on the tideline before flying off north into Lade Bay and on towards Littlestone and beyond. A scarce bird in these parts.
