Where to watch

Google maps It is now possible to find the local sites on this Google Maps link. I’m extremely grateful to Brian Harper for his skill and hard work in putting this together. The old site guides link off the ‘where to watch’ layer and the new tetrad guides off the ‘2k/tetrad’ layer. We will continue to work on this feature to add more information and photos over the coming months. If you have any queries or comments please let us know.

Tetrad Guides The old-style site guides are gradually being replaced with tetrad guides which will bring the information more up to date, incorporate the results of the 2007-11 Bird Atlas, include lists of all taxa (in conjunction with the Kent and Medway Biological Records Centre) and more general information and history about the local area.
