Just 1 Common Quaker and 1 Hebrew Character in the trap since my last post. Made the usual Dunge visit today in very pleasant weather. There was not much to report on the ARC but we soon caught up with a few birds not seen previously. There were 2 Black-necked Grebes on the New Diggings, the Firecrest was still in the Lighthouse Garden and 2 Black Redstarts showed well on the power station wall behind the first seawatching hide. We then had a look for the Dartford Warbler in the Kerton Road area but there were only a few Reed Buntings and Meadow Pipits. However, I disturbed a Hare in that area, which disappeared in a flash. After lunch we walked round the RSPB reserve and managed a brief view of a Great White Egret, plus 2 Little Egrets, a drake Smew, Kingfisher and Marsh Harrier which flew a bit closer than they usually do.
