Spur of the moment.

We took a spur of the moment trip to Nottcutts garden centre, Maidstone for some garden sundries, after which we went to the Potted Garden Nursery at Bearstead, they have revamped the pond area and are sponsered by Kent Wildlife Trust, from the hide had great views of Chaffinch, Tits, Blue, Coal and Great, Dunnock and some great acrobatic squirrels, making easy work of bypassing the anti squirrel devices on the feeders, we then made our way to Hollingbourne and cut across country to the A2 and then onto the lower Rainham Road, and thought why not a visit to Motney Hill, the tide was about right, we parked up at the bottom end of the road, and the rise gives you a great view of the Medway Estuary opposite Kingsnorth Power Station, see picture below.

My observation was quite a few Redshank then in came about eight Dunlin and a short while later a number of Black Tailed Godwits appeared to feed on the last of the exposed mud.
