Since my last post I've recorded 3 Hebrew Characters and 2 Common Quakers in the moth trap. I made a visit to Dunge today in fine weather but we struggled to find much. On the RSPB reserve the star bird was a fairly close fly past of a Bittern between the ramp and Boulderwall farm. We also saw a Stoat, 3 Smew, a few Goldeneye, the usual Marsh Harriers and 2 Little Egrets. The Long-eared Owl was showing quite well in the sunshine. After lunch we had a walk behind Scotney Farm but saw very little apart from a couple of Egyptian Geese and a Stock Dove. For the first time since the start of the winter we failed to see a Great White Egret.
