RSPB Dungeness sightings

19th July 2010, Monday

The white-tailed plover is still on site and seen most frequently around the ARC pits.  At the same location, two wood sandpipers have been seen today.  The great white egret is also still on the Denge Marsh and the purple heron chicks were seen for the first time over the weekend.  It is not possible to say how many are present but it appeared to be at least two individuals.  We are expecting the oldest chicks to fledge shortly.
