The moth trap continues to disapoint. Off to Dunge today where, after seeing 2 Black-necked Grebes on the ARC pit, a message came through about a Barred Warbler in the trapping area, where we had good views which were a bit distant for photography. This was my first for 9 years and also a Dunge tick. We then saw 2 Black Terns and an Arctic Tern at the patch. After lunch, from the fishing boats, we saw 2 Arctic Skuas harassing the Sandwich Terns. We then resumed at the ARC where the Glossy Ibis was showing and finished on the reserve where a Peregrine flew low near the visitor centre and a GreatWhite Egret was at Dengemarsh. One of our better days!
