About Me

I am a novice to birding and have become interested since walking Frank our dog, a cross Flat Coat / Springer around Hastings Country Park and the surrounding area, I realised the little brown birds weren't just sparrows.

Dungeness 5 visits in 7 days.

 
 
 
 
27th August I went off to the Arc pit to see the Red-necked Phalarope a new bird for me although distant was ok through the scope
 
 
 
Hearing a Wryneck was at Galloways I sped over there to be told disappeared 10 mins ago. After waiting an hour I left.

On 28th hearing a Melodious warbler was at Dengemarsh I spent an hour looking for it and got a glimpse.

On 29th a Wryneck was now with the Melodious and after spending a couple of hours I got great views of the Melodious
