Sunday 17th Feb and another visit to the Hoo peninsula. A brief visit revealed few birds at St Mary's Bay, only an adult Med Gull flying over and some very 'conspicuous shooters waiting to shoot their 3 plastic decoy ducks (always an easy target). At Grain 2 Water Rails managed to swim away very fast as I parked the car though I did manage a few shots, (going going gone) back into cover. Despite by best attempts at making squealing noises more akin to a scene from the film Deliverance (yes I really am that old) they never appeared again. .Nearby the 46 Barnacle Geese were still in company of the bitzer Geese.
