Sedge Warblers

Lade - 0800hrs - sunshine and showers, w2 - Trudged across the desert to check out the shingle ridges for migrants on a glorious spring morning. At least 10 singing Sedge Warblers from Mockmill Sewer plus 4 more singers at the back of south pit. A steady flow of Swallows heading north, plus a few Willow Warblers, Chiffchaffs, Blackcap, Song Thrush and Stonechat in the scrub. Also noted 4 Wheatears, 6 Med Gulls over, 10 singing Linnets, Skylarks and Mipits, soaring Marsh Harriers, Sparrowhawk and Buzzard.
Dungeness  - 1530hrs - An hour from the concrete road produced just 2 divers, 2 Little Gulls and a Med Gull.
NB: by all accounts a quiet day around the peninsula with just the Long-tailed duck and Garganeys of note on the bird reserve.
