Dungeness Visits

Not much to report from the Clfftop these last couple of days; too cold for moths and too foggy for seawatching 

However, although I try not to go there too often, Dungeness has twice come to the rescue lately. On Friday we managed to locate the Common Crane which had been there for several days, distantly on Denge Marsh. There were again two booming Bitterns, and we caught up with Willow Warbler, Sedge Warbler , Wheatear and Black Redstart for the year. Today, frustrated by lack of visibility, I went over again, stopping at Scotney GPs where I finally managed to see a Swallow [!], also a couple of Yellow Wagtails, 10 Tree Sparrows, 3 Corn Buntings and a pair of Avocets. On the way to the reserve the three Cattle Egrets were in full view in one of the horse paddocks. Finally I vistied the Dennis Hide and picked out the superb summer plumaged Red-necked Grebe which we missed on our last visit.
