Dungeness and Rye Harbour 29/8/14

After my early Dusseldorf flight, I was free to twitch, so I went to Dungeness and a couple of goodies were in store. I met Mick and we spent the rest of the afternoon together. A good set of species at Dungeness that included the following:

Melodious Warbler - 1
Red-necked Phalarope - 1 juv
Little Stint - 1 juv
Garganey - 6
Sand Martin - 1000+

After this success we went to Rye so I could hopefully get a Curlew Sandpiper on my county yearlist, where thankfully we did. A great afternoon.
