Dungeness 6th Oct

First bird to be seen on entering reserve..stonechat at boulderwall farm, whinchat also showing on track. Firth hide showing ruff and pectoral sandpiper. Great white egret was at denge as usual, but not so usual was the fly by in front of it by a bittern. Two buzzard showed from the visitor centre being harassed by a sparrowhawk. Plenty of chiffchaffs around and lots of goldfinches in flocks all over the place.
ARC showing normal ducks and such inc 7 pintail and the black necked grebe still around. A peregrine laid in wait amongst vegetation on the far end shingle bank coming out on 3 occasions to chase after pigeons but didn't manage to catch them. 2 Jays flew through and both green and great spotted woodpeckers showed.
