24th Nov

A blustery day on the peninsula with a chilly northerly wind meant unsurprisingly there was no sign of the Dusky Warbler today. 

Dungeness Point: Two Caspian Gulls (1x Adult/1x 1st winter) were noted on the beach off the Power Station. 

Dungeness RSPB: 2 Great Northern Diver were still on Burrowes Pit from Dennis's Hide however there was no sign of the Black-throated Diver today. The Black-necked Grebe and Slavonian Grebe were both still present from the Firth Lookout. 

The 'flock' of five Glossy Ibis were present once again favouring the fields around Homeleigh Farm and were joined by five Cattle Egret this afternoon. Up to four Chiffchaff were noted around the Reserve trails and a Great White Egret was seen from the entrance track.
