Ring Ouzel

Dungeness - cold, misty, ne 2 - With the Dungeness foghorn booming away in the murk we went for a wander around the Trapping Area and Long Pits first thing. Bird of the morning was our first Ring Ouzel of spring that flew from the Desert floor, clacked a couple of times and disappeared into the willows. A few Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps were in song, while Great Spotted Woodpecker, 10 Redwings, Fieldfare and Brambling also of note. A Hawfinch was found at the top end of Long Pits (OL) but had gone to ground by the time we arrived.
Lade - No real change from the weekend here with the long-staying Long-tailed Ducks, three Goldeneyes, Teal, Pochard and Shoveler still on site.
