    Indeed, the memorable for all the wrong reasons infamous trip to Mussau. Along with yourself, Jon, Keith Turner, Neil Bostock and myself we saw some great birds. Being robbed wasn’t something we’d bargained for though so sharing two pairs of bins between five of us wasn’t very practical. I also...

    Turtle Dove, Kent

    I don't know how small meena can be but this bird is distinctly smaller than Collared Doves. To my eye the breast colouring is also more turtle dove like, Andy has some photos which may add more. The bare skin surrounding the eye is also virtually non existent

    I've moved to Medway.

    Hi Pat I'll endeavour to post here when I get a chance. The entire Medway estuary is worthy of putting in time to look for stuff, it's just a case of exploring the area. Motney, Lower Halstow and Copperhouse are some of my favourite areas. Re KOS discussion areas, the 'newish' forum allows for...

    I've moved to Medway.

    Hi Andy I rarely look here but i guess I should do really. The KOS website will indeed provide you with lots of info re recent bird sightings posted on the website. Re moth trapping I can look into that for you. Send me a message and I can update you on other sites to check in the area also. Re...
