No moths to report yet. Had a day at Dunge today in calm mild weather for a change. We started at the ARC pit where a Bittern showed well but distantly from the Hanson Hide with a Great White Egret. Three Grey Herons were also there and a Sparrowhawk flew close to the hide. At the Fishing Boats c1000 Great Crested Grebes were on the sea. A few Common Scoter and around 10 Red-Throated Divers were seen. The 2 Cattle Egrets were showing well along the Dengemarsh Road, but no cattle to be seen. A Liitle Egret was seen flying from the Springfield Bridge which meant we had clocked up 5 Heron species before lunch. After lunch on the RSPB Reserve around 5 Smew, including the drake, were seen plus a Great White Egret, 2 Goosander and a Black-necked Grebe. Further Little and Great White Egrets were seen at the south end of the ARC. Lastly from the Screen Hide on the ARC pit, a Bittern showed well before flying and another Great White Egret flew in.
