UNLOVED AND UNMANAGED

These are a few shots of what was one the best reserves in kent,let alone in the county,you been wondering why no reports have been coming out off are beloved stodmarsh/grove,this is the reason i given up so having many,martyn is die hard and still torture himself every weekend,unless you are 8ft tall you be fine,i did not take any for the ramp as would just be hell,
 this is the famous baillons ball,name for that reason
 in focus hide to everyone else harrison,cattle egret,wilson phalorope,purple heron,name just a few
 the famous feast hide where all the kingfisher shots come from,the island that myself and a few other worked on a couple of years back,just make out the chiddy stick
this is the otherside,after being promised when the new management took over to return to it hay day,this is the result,if you going down you just maybe i mean maybe,might see a a natural england worker,but you more chance of seening a spotted crake,but you go down the woods today he be happy with his chainsaw cutting down trees,the answer is if you cant cope give it away like most of your other sites,or even give it to the birders to maintain.because you are just killing the place and breaking thousands of peoples hearts

NEARLY HAD A NASTY ACCIDENT

Nearly had a nasty accident is a understatement,after spending a few hours try to get a few more shots of the juv marsh harrier
i was walking back to my car and i must of scared the living daylights of this marsh harrier 2cy female i think as see was quartering the bend,she then lunged at me with both claws,i felt the breeze of her wings as she past millimetres above my head,it gave me the biggest scare of my life a few dogdy shots of the bird
