Common Tern rafts are back at RSPB Dungeness (Alan Kell, Assistant Warden)

Other recent highlights include:

Bittern sightings have become a regular feature on the reserve and can often be heard booming.

The spring migration has brought the arrival of warblers; sedge, reed, whitethroat and lesser whitethroat can all be heard singing through the day.

Hobbies, swifts and swallows can be seen daily throughout the reserve.

A hoopoe fly over thrilled those lucky enough to see it.

A range of waterfowl have been recorded including goldeneye and garganey.

We have a range of waders in our hay fields such as greenshank, redshank, little ringed plover, dunlin and ruff.

Tree sparrows are regularly sighted on the feeder at the front of Boulderwall farmhouse.
