RSPB Dungeness sightings

25th March 2012, Sunday

The first little ringed plover of the season was spotted at the eastern end of the ARC pit yesterday morning. The long-tailed duck was on Burrowes pit and a drake garganey was on the Denge Marsh flood – visible from the gate on the bridle track to the left of Denge Marsh hide. A bittern was seen but not heard at Hooker’s pits and a firecrest was in the bushes across the track from Christmas Dell hide.
