RSPB Dungeness sightings

Our first wheatear of the year was seen near Makepeace hide on Wednesday and another has been near the access track for most of today. Two sand martins flew through this morning. The penduline tit has just been seen from the Hanson-ARC hide again. Also of note: several smew and goldeneye, two Slavonian grebes, bittern, two avocets, a firecrest and two ravens.
