Dungeness 27th Sep

After a rough start to the week, and an unsuccessful attempt to return to work, I managed a short trip out today after being stuck indoors for a few days. Started at ARC where all the usual suspects were bountiful including 120 golden plover, 6 pintail, and a nice spot for the day a distant black necked grebe. 2 black terns also showed at distant. Returning to the car 3 wheatear were seen by the car park.
Over to the visitor centre and guess what...? yep a rich roast! On the way i spotted a whinchat on a fence and 2 green woodpeckers behind, I never managed a shot of the whinchat but did get the woodpeckers. Drove up to denge where 3 marsh harriers showed, 1 sparrowhawk and the great white egret was in view in front of the hide.
On returning to the visitor centre, the 2 black terns were now over burrows as were 3 dunlin, 2 common sandpipers and a redshank.
Count for the day 58

A big thank you to the RSPB staff for continuing to let me drive around the reserve, as I am still not able to walk very far.

  1. DungyDave your photos are fantastic! I never realized that Dungeness was such a bird haven, I'm not a twitter but appreciate the wildlife around me. Keep that shutter clicking.
