Not knowing quite where to go this morning I ended up at Dungeness looking for the Caspian gull but I couldn't find by the fishing boats. Drove around the old lighthouse seeing two wheatears from the car, grabbed a quick shot before moving to the RSPB reserve.


Went to the big corner hide where I watched the two black necked grebes chasing a little grebe and over near one of the islands was another black necked grebe, all rather distant. Hoping they would come a bit closer I looked back towards the power station seeing another one steaming right past me, heading towards the others. Counted and recounted several times to make sure there was four before being joined by a photographer and his wife from Holland.

Black Necked Grebe

Tonight, still struggling a bit with setting up Blogger but slowly coming together!
