I had no great hopes for the weather today but you know what? it was ok!! a bit windy but hey. So met up with a group of people at Dungeness.
Not many photos I'm afraid, the birds were fairly distant. There weren't huge numbers, did the recent freeze chase them off?, but some good ones. Slavonian Grebe, Peregrine, Goosander, Marsh Harrier and Black Necked Grebe being the highlights. Heard a pinging Bearded Tit briefly.
Distant Black Necked Grebe. Rubbish pic but record shot.
Anyway at 2:30 ish most people went off to twitch a King Eider, Trish and I went for the photogenic Night Heron.
Along the way look what we found on the path,
And of course the photogenic Heron? Could we find it? No just as we were giving up ... YES. Appeared to be asleep and in some reeds, if I hadn't seen an eye....
So you'll have to content yourself with
