Just Hebrew Characters and Common Quakers in the moth trap recently. Made another visit to Dunge today in pleasant weather conditions. At the ARC pit a Great White Egret, Little Egret and 3 Marsh harriers were noted. Near the Patch there were 2 Grey Wagtails on the power station wall by the water treatment works. At the Patch there were 100s of gulls. An Iceland Gull was seen (but not by me) and a Little Gull showed well after a long wait, another was also seen. A Harbour Porpoise also showed briefly. Back on the reserve, the drake Smew and Ring-necked Duck were at the far end of the pool next to "Cook's Pool" near Boulderwall Farm. A Great White Egret, Little Egret and 4 Ruff were seen on Burrows, and the 2 Long-eared Owls  were again behind the dipping pond. Four White-fronted Geese and 3 Ruff were seen from the Dengemarsh hide. A redhead Smew and another Marsh Harrier were seen on the walk back to the Visitor Centre.
