RSPB Dungeness sightings

3rd April 2012, Tuesday

Highlights so far today: spoonbill on the ARC pit, bittern booming at Hooker’s pits, bullfinch at the willow trail, willow warbler at the ARC site and in the main car park bushes, blackcap near the viewing screen and two swallows flying over. Yesterday three garganey (two males and a female) were on the lake near Boulderwall Farm and two little ringed plovers were at the eastern end of the ARC pit where the first whimbrel of the season was also seen.
