The weekly visit to Dungeness last Thursday proved interesting. There were still 4 Cattle Egrets on the RSPB Reserve with Great White and Little Egrets also noted. At the Fishing Boats there were 2 Yellow-legged Gulls. After lunch we headed over towards the Observatory trapping area north of the Railway Station. We didn't get far before a Wryneck appeared on brambles in front of us. My first for 6 years. We also noted 3 Whinchats in the area. In the moth trap since then a Convolvulus Hawk-moth was obviously attracted to the tobacco plants in the garden and 4 Old Lady moths have been seen.
