3rd April 2016 - Dungeness

A lovely spring day lead to a trip to Dungeness.  A brief sea watch didn't produce much but a wander onto the NNR had a lovely male Black Redstart and quite a few incredible views of Firecrest.  My first Swallow of the year flew over but there were no other hirundines seen that day.

Onto the RSPB reserve and the first bird over was a Sparrowhawk.  Looking out from the first hide, we spotted our first terns of the year, Sandwich Tern and Common Tern. There were a few Common Gull around and both Bearded Tit and Cetti's Warbler were seen from the viewpoint.  There were also the first few Sedge Warbler of the year.

Year list: 158
Lifers this year: 10
