Not much to report from the moth trap in the last week. Today the sun shone at Dungeness. We spent the morning at the patch where the best birds were 7 Black Terns and an Arctic Skua. We failed to connect with any Poms. Other birds noted were Red-throated Divers, Common Scoters, 2 Razorbills, Kittiwakes, Bar-tailed Godwits and Whimbrels. In the afternoon on the RSPB reserve a few waders were present: 1 Curlew Sandpiper, 1 Common Sandpiper, 1 Whimbrel plus around 3 Grey Plovers, a Redshank, Ringed Plovers and Turnstones, of which a couple were in full breeding plumage. Two Little Terns were on a Island in front of the Visitor Centre and a White Wagtail appeared in front of the Firth Hide. Around the reserve 2 Hobbies were also noted.
