Up early on Saturday for a trip to Beeley a nice little village on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire to see a Dusky Thrush. As the villagers did not want lots of people parking in the village they had set up a free one-way shuttle bus from the Carlton Lees carpark about a mile away. They also supplied tea/coffee and bacon and sausage baps.
18/5/2013 ** I left home at 6am to go to Lakenheath RSPB. About half an hour into the journey I noticed I had a message on my pager. It was a bit early for a message so I stopped and read it. Mega!! – Dusky Thrush – Margate Cemetery. As I was near Stevenage I changed route and went south on the A1 and arrived in Margate about 8am. Ten minutes later I had seen the bird. Afterwards I went to Reculver and saw a female Montagus Harrier .
