Yesterday (middle of January 24) walking through Broadwater Warren on the white route I came across a group of 20+ meadow pipits flying from tree to tree and back again as the sun set around 4.30pm - I assumed they were preparing to roost . Light level was very low so not a great photo.The only other birds I saw on the white route were robins, coal tit, carrion crow and jackdaws and finally a good view of a kestrel . I was hoping to spot waxwings as they have appeared recently all over Tunbridge Wells and in Groombridge village - I wondered if any had been seen although red berries are scarce on the reserve so perhaps not so likely.

This is my first attempt at a blog entry so hopefully I've posted correctly.
