Weekend in Kent

 The mobile Obs- gave it a full test this weekend in Kent with Holly. First night stayed at the Hop Farm (also known as Black Friday Field, Asbo Green or Orc View Farm- due to the large numbers of destitute Capitalists that utilise the site) and after escaping there pitched up near Whitstable. Spent the weekend between doing touristy stuff with Holly and birding round Oare marshes. Bumped into ex-Beddington birder Andy Taylor at Swalecliffe- great to catch up. 
 Juvenile Little Stints 
 Juvenile Little Stint
Adult Little Stint- worn and faded bird looking rather confusing 
 Juvenile Curlew Sandpiper and Dunlin
 Black-tailed Godwit
 Ringed Plover  
Oare Marshes 

 Put the camper van to the full test!
Got the moth trap out one night- had this female Orange Swift and a few other bits and bobs. If I'm going to start up this mobile obs stuff need to get onto I-record and E-bird to get my records somewhere.
