Having not had a good look look round for a week or two and been lucky enough to have been a volunteer Warden on Skomar off the Pembrokeshire Coast in South Wales, I was itching to get back to the marshes. As time was limited for the weekend I decided to get as much down at Cliffe and Northward as I could in a day. So I walked along to Black Barns, a solitary Nightingale sang his heart out in a hawthorn, I swear only about metre from me. Could I see him ? Could I 'eck !! It was like listening to an invisible canary in a cage.
The North Kent Marshes are a very special area and worth preserving at all cost.
