A quick trip to Dungeness this afternoon. Not a lot on the board in the visitor centre, main report noted was a female long tail duck from Makepeace. Large numbers of shoveller on Burrows and 2 pintail of note. Over to the ARC to find 5 Bewick swans 2 adults and 3 juveniles. All usual ducks including 2 pintail and 1 goldeneye. 1 marsh harrier was hunting the area and a few kestrels. Large numbers of stock doves rose often from the fields in the distance. One dove was quite strange, it came over the lake and made several attempts to land on the water and did manage it once. Very strange to see a dove act like this, I don't know if anyone else has witnessed this, but it was new for me. A great white egret also dropped in for a short visit.
Count for the day 48
