It would appear that the KOS have lost all sightings post from February up to present day and, they are nowhere to be found within the KOS website.
Sightings will now be posted here and will be up and running properly from January 1st.
If you would like to send any sightings to me for posting, you can at  martynwilson@talktalk.net


December 22nd

Starting at Grove Ferry this morning in another attempt to get Woodcock arriving at 0630 and placing myself at the gate to the Paddocks I waited. At 0655 one bird flashed past and into the Paddock and at 0700 a second Woodcock flew by past the Paddock and over the reeds between the Feast hide and the river. A Barn Owl was hunting to the south of the Oxbow, 89 Mute Swans left the back pool and a Black-tailed Godwit was with 335 Lapwings on the Ramp pool. Nine Marsh Harriers were seen and 2 distant ringtail Hen Harriers. The 1100+ Cormorants left roost in different directions and a single Water Pipit was at Marsh hide. A Sparrowhawk, a Kestrel, 19 Goldfinch, 1 Goldcrest, 4 Great-crested Grebes, 1 Stonechat and a Common Buzzard were about the best of the rest. Again no sign of the Tundra Bean Geese today although the 251 Greylag Geese were at Collard's.

Some Beaver action at Stodmarsh


Grey Heron reflections in the early morning fog infused sunlight.
