Lade - 1100hrs - cold, sunny, ne4 - Despite the chilly wind several Willow Warblers and a Blackcap singing from the sallows along with a couple of Cetti`s, Reed and Sedge Warblers.. Two Marsh Harriers hunting over the farmland and 5 Whimbrels on the grassy ridges by the airfield. Smart birds are Whimbrels and one of the highlights of the spring wader passage at Dungeness. Two Med Gulls still hanging around on south pit.
A few moths in the trap last night, but nothing of any note.
