No moths to report and yesterday we struggled against the wind at Dungeness. However, a Sedge Warbler, the earliest I've seen, was singing by the track to the Hanson Hide on the ARC and  was followed by the first Firecrest near the start of the Willow Trail. At the patch we could only find a single Med. Gull amognst the commoner species but another 4 Firecrests showed in the Lighthouse Garden. After lunch we walked round the RSPB reserve. We saw about 5 Smew near Boulderwall including 2 Drakes and as we approached Hooker's Pit a Common Tern was seen (also my earliest spring record), but by the time we reached the hide it had gone. I didn't manage any pictures so here's 1 from last week and 1 from the garden.
