After a few months of keeping themselves busy breeding and feeding, birds are now moving past Kingsdown again. A Whinchat has been hanging around on the fences of the rifle range for the last couple of days.
And who is this fellow, hardly old enough to be out of the nest? Danger indeed!
It's a cute little Wheatear, whose confiding nature can make one understand how they were caught in large numbers by downland shepherds and sold up to the restaurants of London.
Also making use of the sea wall was a young Kittiwake.
And up on the cliffs, two Kestrels look down for their next meal.
A Rock Pipit (one of the year's breeders perhaps) and a family of Whitethroats were seen, while on the beach the flock contained 36 Mediterranean Gulls and a first-winter Common Gull, showing its white rump and dark primaries. In this picture are Meds, an Oystercatcher and a Sandwich Tern.
Nearby on the beach, the Kingsdown Oak's acorns are developing.
