Spoonbill....A good day...
It has been a good day so far at Dungeness with a spoonbill at Denge Marsh until 3pm when it headed towards ARC pit. Plus two bitterns seen directly from Denge Marsh hide regularly and a third seen flying towards Hooker's pits. Some winter birds are still here (smew - 8 redheads and two drakes) but...

It has been a blustery day here at Dungeness, so many birds are taking shelter. However, there have still been good views of marsh harriers, smew, goldeneye and great white egrets on Burrowes pit.

A good day...
Anyone who has spent time peering across the Boulderwall fields over the past couple of weeks hoping for a glimpse of our tundra bean geese might be miffed to know that they were floating around on the water on Denge Marsh yesterday morning - in full view of the hide. A good start to my day off, especially...

Latest sightings ...
After a rather damp start this morning, the sun is now trying to shine through the clouds - I can even see a little blue sky through the window. There are a good few birds around today as well; 20+ Barnacle geese feeding in the fields near Boulderwall Farm, Curlew and Great White Egret around the trail...

First off all, many apologies for no recent posts - computer problems again. Anyway, here's a quick summary of what's been happening over the past few days. An excellent few days birding began on Thursday afternoon with the arrival of four bean geese in the fields to the right of the track as...

Star birds turn up just in time for weekend...
We received some exciting news late this afternoon as a visitor came in to report two penduline tits on Denge Marsh. Thank you! They were seen from the Springfield Bridge in a thin strip of reeds between there and the Denge Marsh hide. Hoping they'll still be there tomorrow. Elsewhere on the reserve...
