Since my last post I've had just 3 Common Quakers in the moth trap. I had a reasonably successful day today at Dungeness despite very windy conditions. We started at the ARC pit where there was 1 Great White Egret and a Marsh Harrier but not much else. At the the patch we found 1 Iceland Gull on the beach and 2 Fulmars flew past the Fishing Boats before lunch. In the afternoon we couldn't find the Ring-necked Duck on the RSPB Reserve, but the 2 Long-eared Owls were showing well behind the dipping pond in good light. A drake Smew was present on Burrows and 2 more Great White Egrets were noted on the reserve. Four White-fronts were seen from the Dengemarsh hide and a couple of Corn Buntings were around Springfield Bridge along with 2 more Marsh Harriers.
