SWC Free Walk 121, Bekesbourne (Sturry) Circular. 22/1/12.

The North-Eastern corner of Kent forms the basis of this week's 11 (12.7 per me) miler. Officially called a Bekesbourne Circular, this walker found it logistically better to start from Sturry; there was some minor deviation twixt Fordwich and Trenley Park wood. Otherwise, this is a relatively straightforward, anti-clockwise map walk of some typically Kentish scenery - fields, orchards and woodlands. The Westbere Marshes are now home to the elusive bittern, but it was neither seen nor heard today, unfortunately. Plenty of other bird song though, and my first Snowdrop/Crocus sightings of the year as well. A very pleasant walk through a quiet corner of the county, near Canterbury. Well worth paying the supplement (though we really shouldn't have a two tier system!) and using the HST from London. (Still issues with watching recent uploads in HD - Youtube advised).
