A very early start at Rye Harbour this morning produced no Red-rumped Swallows, but there were still plenty of Hirundines including my first House Martins this year!! However 2 Grasshopper Warblers showed well reeling away and a Cuckoo showed well on the telegraph wires. On the scrapes near Harbour Farm a summer-plumaged Bar-tailed Godwit, Avocets and 2 Grey Partridge showed.
At Dungeness RSPB reserve the Purple Heron performed nicely on Denge Marsh viewable from the Denge Marsh Road. On the main reserve a Tree Sparrow was around the feeders.
