RSPB Dungeness sightings

The long-tailed duck and spoonbill were still present on the ARC pit yesterday and a hen harrier flew over. The bittern was heard booming at Hooker’s pits, where willow warbler and corn bunting were seen. A wheatear was near Scott hide and a black redstart at Denge Marsh. Several chiffchaffs and sedge warblers were around the site and eight swallows flew over.

Pop goes the weasel

There have been several sightings of weasel recently from widespread locations on the nature reserve. Most have been of singles and fleeting, but on 25th March John Bushell had a longer encounter with 2 animals at Castle Water and managed to get this photo of 2 fighting (or were they courting?).
