Honey Buzzard

Dungeness - mild, dry, cloudy, NW 2 - First thing at the point it was very quiet in the bushes with just a few Whitethroats and Wheatears, plus Yellow Wagtails and Mipits overhead. A male Peregrine was sat on its usual perch atop a pylon.

                                Avocets and Greenshank from Firth hide

  At Boulderwall this afternoon four Cattle Egrets were flying around the fields, eventually heading over towards ARC. A guided walk around the circular trail for ten guests delivered the expected range of birds including several each of Marsh Harrier, Common Buzzard, Kestrel and one very smart Honey Buzzard that flew over Hooker`s westward with an attendant crow. Also noted four Avocets, two Dunlins and a Greenshank from Firth hide, Blackwits and Snipe from Dengemarsh hide, plus Wheatears, Cetti`s Warbler, Chiffchaff, Whitethroat, a few hirundines over and a Great White Egret.
