This morning I met up with Bob Bland and Pete Tyler in Lenham and from there we made our way to Dungeness via Romney marsh.On the marsh we had hoped to see Tree Sparrows or a possible Harrier but this morning the marsh  proved to be very quite,the feeders at the farm holding just House Sparrows and a Great Tit,we did see a nice Green Woodpecker though.
On reaching Dungeness we met Trevor Maynard and Trevor Graves in the A R C car park and then we all made our way out to the Hanson hide seeing on the way,Reed Warbler,Sedge Warbler and small numbers of Swallow,Sand Martins and Swifts.Birds of note that we saw from the hide were (0900) - (100+) Lapwing,(5) Dunlin,(4) Wood Sandpipers,(3) L R Plovers and (1) B N Grebe.

In all I saw a total of (55) species,a nice selection for July.
