Report. R. Lane. 3rd October 2010

"Today's sightings include several over the Par Eastern Cliffs , namely 5 x Buzzards and 3 x Ravens. Then streaking up the eastern stream came the Kingfisher ! Together with dragonflies (including scarce Migrant Hawkers) and butterflies (6 species) it's surprising what 20mins of sun can do !
Back to the Pool at c.4pm, Geese galore, but not a Bar-headed G. in sight! Met Andrew as a consolation!
On up to the western car-park where 2 x Sandwich Terns were close inshore (latish)and despite our theorising that the Brent Geese had left, there were c.4 far out among the breakers (non-divng, and 'tipped forward' as they swam to use an expression a lady used recently !). Whether they were 'the Famous Five' or a new batch, I don't know."

Thanks for the report Roger.
Where are you most likely to see the Kingfisher on the Eastern Stream?


  1. Trevor: at no time or place are you likely to see a Kingfisher on the eastern stream ! More likely good luck (or poor judgement?). Not only do they have a will of their own, but get disturbed at different times by walkers. Sorry !

  2. Thanks Roger. I want to know the fishings haunts of the one on the Par River providing it returns this year.
