Another lovely day so decided to visit the whole of the reserve and persuaded David to join me. 9 am start and watched the Little Owl at close range and of course the camera was in the boot. Straight onto the reserve hoping for Stilts or Flycatchers and a hopefull Purple Heron which was reported over Nickolls quarry flying towards Dungeness so a walk straight to the view mound. All the usual species and at long last for me good views of the Bearded Tits A slow walk back had all the singing Cettis,Sedge and Reed Warblers and at the first hide as you enter the reserve a very obliging Lesser Whitethroat show very well just outside the hide.Of note was 2 Hobbies which were in sight most of the day. By one oclock I had had enough so we made our way to a Bistro for lunch . Late afternoon early evening did the walk from our house along the beach to Dymchurch and back not a single wader was sighted.
40 species was the total.
