Lade - dry and sunny, sw 4 - Another fine spring day with plenty of blue skies and bright sunshine. A tour of the local patch failed to find any Wheatears, although a few more Chiffchaffs were in song around the willow swamp along with the usual Cetti`s Warblers and Great Tits. Several Med Gulls flew over calling, a Marsh Harrier flew through and two Goldeneyes remained on south lake.
I managed to miss a Short-toed Treecreeper this morning after misplacing my phone for a couple of hours, and by the time I got down to Dungeness it had done the off from a private garden towards the trapping area; another brilliant find by DB. On the grass sward by the old lighthouse two Wheatears and a White Wagtail were of note.
