News from RSPB Dungeness

21st February 2008, Thursday

A 1st year glaucous gull, a different bird to the two seen at the fishing boats last week, paid a brief visit to Burrowes pit this afternoon, along with an adult Caspian gull, present in front of the centre in the morning. An oiled red-throated diver appeared on Burrowes late afternoon, later being seen on the bank below Scott hide, and the two water pipits remained around the New Excavations. The seven barnacle geese and two Tundra bean geese remained around Denge Marsh, and a bittern was seen behind Hookers pits, ready to make the most of the recently stocked Rudd pool!
