They said it would be 'Springlike' today , but no one told the weather . With rain due after lunch , and the warmer ? weather , I decided to try once more for my first Brambling of the Winter , and headed for Bough Beech Reservoir , a Kent Wildlife Trust site . I did not succeed in my quest , and found very little , due mainly to a very strong wind blowing down the reservoir , making it look like the North Sea . So this post will take the picture and comment form .
On the reservoir , lots of Teal , a few Wigeon and Pochard and at least 40 Cormorant .
