Seen this weekend 1st and 2nd May, The two Purple Herons are still being seen over Denge marsh and the reed beds, also seen hobby, Wheatear, Reed Warbler and Cuckoo, a fair number of swallows roosted on the reeds at Denge marsh
Some of the swallows still in the reeds
also seen were Cetti's Warbler, Willow Warbler, Lesser Whitethroat, Yellow Wagtails and common Tern, Avocet, Black tailed Godwit. The weather some what dampend the scene on Sunday when it rained for most of the day.
I understand that the purple herons are a very welcome new arrival this year - is that correct? Are the other birds regular visitors there? Hope to visit Dungeness in about 2 weeks time, and it will be great to see what is there then.
