Field Trip to Grove Ferry
Richard Brooks (rspb-images.com) - water pipit

Wednesday, 23 March 2016

13 members of the Tonbridge Group met up at the Grove Ferry end of the Stodmarsh Reserve. It was a mild sunny morning turning to cloud, but the light breeze made it easier to see small birds. Everyone enjoyed seeing the water pipits which had over-wintered at Stodmarsh and the skulking Cetti's warbler.
