Another of the visits that Mr C and I made whilst away was to the RSPB reserve at Dungeness. This shingle filled reserve almost looks lunar as you approach in the car, but I'm pleased to say that it gave us one of the best days of birdwatching that we've ever had. Mr C's been keeping some good records of what we saw, especially photographic ones, and if you pop over to UK Nature Blog he's included a complete list as well as a couple of posts on specific sightings of the meadow pipet, Great crested grebe and the rarer Slavonian grebe.
A quick stop-off at the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve the following morning added further to our sightings. A pretty good couple of days for seeing nature and it certainly made me appreciate just how many different things are out there to be spotted if you look carefully!
