Sand Martin

Dungeness - mild, cloudy, w 3 - A wander down to the fishing boats delivered the immature Glaucous Gull sat briefly on the beach before flying off to join hundreds of other large gulls feeding along the strandline. Passerines just inland included a smart male Black Redstart by the lifeboat station, several Stonechats, singing Skylarks and Meadow Pipits, plus two Grey Wagtails over the old lighthouse.
  At Lade ponds two singing Chiffchaffs were in song, while a Sand Martin over north lake was the first of the spring. Also noted around the site, Great White Egret, Goldeneye and Green Woodpecker.
