One of the birds that I encounter on the long and frequent walks and rambles in the area that surrounds our base in heart of the Kent countryside is the Yaffle - more commonly known as the Green Woodpecker (Picus viridis). This year I have been fortunate to watch and photograph a brood being reared at our farm site in the village of Egerton which is between Ashford and Maidstone.

It never fails to amaze me that when we stand and stare we see so much more of The Nature. This too can be applied if we sit and listen and the use of “sound mapping” can help us reconnect with our natural soundscape.

A recent field trip to Samphire Hoe, a spit of new land between Folkestone and Dover, provided a most frustrating photographic opportunity that I sadly managed to get all wrong. However I learnt more about life from the experince than photography.

A recent purchase of a secondhand SIGMA 170-500mm F5-6.3 APO lens for our Canon EOS 40D digital SLR camera that we use for photographing both flora and fauna led to an interesting evening watching the local jackdaws.

Over the last few years we have seen a marked increase in the amount of song thrush (Turdus philomelos) that we share our small section of the Kentish landscape with and close encounters with these beautiful birds always seem to herald a powerful experience.

With the sun beating down in this the warmest of Springs I can remember we decided to go on a forage for two of my favourite wild foods, both of which grow on some of the salt marshes here in Kent, we found both Marsh Samphire (Salicornia europaea) and Sea Purslane (Halimione portulacoides).

Today we paid a visit to local snail farm, H and RH Escargots to see their farm and discuss how we can create links with their wonderful business. Anyone for fresh Helix aspersa maxima cooked in wild garlic and herbs?

One of the highlights of a series of annual events we attend each and every year is the “Bushcraft Magazine May Meet”. We are always glad to attend, share ideas and meet friends old and new – and this year the weather was amazing in our little corner of Kent!
