A nice day dawned so decided to get out for the second time this week on the 10th went to visit friends on Sheppey and visited Oare on the way, with a very high tide Oare was spectacular with masses of birds on the marsh.
Leaving Home today decided to go to Dungeness via the back roads on the marsh behind our house. Within yards of leaving home noticed a bird sitting on the hedge top which turned out to be the above Whinchat. The first time I have ever managed to photo a Whinchat and the first sight of one this year.
Rest of the morning at Dungeness at Hanson Hide. Glossy Ibis was still present and an unusual visit of 2 Avocets on Cormorant Island There was a massive migration of Sand Martins. Total 34
