Still no moths. Another visit to Dungenes in fine weather today made a change. However, we struggled to find much new. We saw 3 Great White Egrets and the Glaucous Gull on the reserve. There were good numbers of Tree Sparrows around the ARC car park and Boulderwall Farm. In the afternoon we tried for the Slavonian Grebe at Scotney and the Bewick's Swans on Walland Marsh but failed with both. On the way home I took a wrong turning while trying to get back to Lydd and stumbled across 3 birders who were looking at the male Hen Harrier on the ground. It was fairly distant but soon flew giving a good view in the late afternoon sunshine
