Now for Something Completely Different !

Yesterday, in response to a request for somwhere new [has to be a circular walk with a pub], three of Slow But Sure met at Ivychurch on Romney Marsh. The plan was to use a triangle of footpaths, but it proved rather sticky, so we used the very quiet lanes instead. It was misty and raining initially.

Birds were limited in this intensively farmed area, but we started with 3 Yellowhammers at the church [we recorded 3 at each of the flagged sites, so 9] and 10 Redwings, later 60 Fieldfares in the gloom. There were quite a lot of birds around Honeychild Farm, notably 80 Collared Doves, also 40 Stock Doves and 200 Common Gulls. On our return to the church a Greenfinch was singing and we saw four-worthy of mention because I saw only one in the last quarter of 2018 in East Sussex...

After a wet walk of over 8 miles we found The Bell very welcoming !
