After a call from Phil Sharpe we arranged a visit to Dungeness syarting at Hanson Hide at 10 am.
With all the usual ducks there was Little and Great Egret stunning drake Pintail and a female Red Crested Pochard.From there over the road hoping for Ring Ouzel which we missed but Stonechats both male and female.and Tree Sparrows on the feeders.Over to the new Lighthouse where a walk around saw nothing at all. Over tpo the sea where Gannets and Scoter were seen but it was also the start of seeing Brent Geese flying in . Over the day we must have seen in excess of 1000 birds migrating in.After a quick trip to Scotney which showed Golden Plover and the usual feral geese and the first Buzzard of the day. To Finish the day a trip back to Boulderwall Farm as Phil Hoped to see the Cattle Egret which again was dipped
The day as it was so warm we did see a few Butterflies but also a Clouded Yellow
Many thanks Phil for a great day out.
