News from RSPB Dungeness

26th August 2006, Saturday

Today’s highlight was a redstart seen on the track, not far from the visitor centre and a whinchat also seen from the track.

Yet again, another osprey was reported as our weekend warden, Bryan, saw it flying over the water tower.

Other birds of prey included: peregrine, marsh harrier, sparrowhawk and merlin.

Waders spotted today include: black-tailed godwit, wood sandpiper and whimbrel.

Finally a common tern was seen over the ARC pit.
