Dungeness Monday 18th feb

Bittern,  Arc Hide.   What a great day Russ and I had at Dungeness First stop was at Arc Hide where we had the Bittern and 12 Redheads including one adult Drake.  There were also plenty of wildfowl there.   We then went to the Power station and beach,  we never saw the Black Redstarts that had been around but lots going on on the sea.   There were birds as far as you could see,  Razorbills,  Guillemots, Gannets,  Gulls, Divers, and probably more if you could pick them out.    The Glaucous was there but we didn't see it.   On the reserve the Penduline Tits had appeared but not for us.   We did glimps the Bean Geese though and had some good views of the Barnacle Geese.    Other birds we caught up with were, Goldcrests,  Firecrest outside Arc hide, Marsh Harriers, Great white Egrets,  Tree Sparrows,  Chiffchaffs.
