RSPB Dungeness

Single snipe, little stint, ruff and green sandpiper were seen from the ARC hide along with 260 golden plovers. A kingfisher was seen from Makepeace hide and two lucky visitors saw a bittern take to the sky over Hooker’s pits. A goldcrest was also seen near Hooker’s pits and small numbers of siskins, redpolls and bramblings were noted flying over mid-morning. Yesterday’s highlights were provided by a male merlin and a wheatear near Makepeace hide.
