Made the weekly trip to Dunge yesterday where we struggled to see much in very windy conditions. During the day we spent some time at the Fishing Boats and the patch but with just a Red-throated Diver, several Med. Gulls, a couple of Guillemots the main interest to go with large numbers of Gannets. Around the reserve the highlights were a Peregrine which flew by just outside the windows of the visitor centre, and a male Goosander. Around 5 Great White Egrets and 8 Little Egrets were noted. The Long-eared Owl, Cattle Egret and Ringed-necked Duck were all keeping out of sight. As we left we heard a report of a Ring-billed Gull but we failed to re-locate it.
