No moths yet this year. Tuesday afternoon I made a brief visit to Seasalter where 2 Short-eared Owls showed well from the Pumping House with a ringtail Hen Harrier there too. Today made my first visit of the year to windy Dungeness. A Peregrine showed well over the ARC pit. On the main part of the reserve we saw the Shag from the Dennis hide just before it flew-my first in Kent for 8 years. The Long-eared Owl was just about visible behind the Dipping Pond. We failed to see the Penduline Tit which had been seen earlier, but ticked off 3 Geat White Egrets, 5 Little Egrets, 1 or 2 Smew and a Kingfisher. Bird of the day however was the 1st Winter Caspian Gull which was lying low in the afternoon gale very close to the road near the Fishing Boats.
