The last Dungeness round-up... for now!

Great White Egrets are a daily given between August - April

My peak count for the stay was of 15 birds, most numerous on Burrowes Pit and New Diggings

It was a good autumn at Dungeness for Ring Ouzels...

...including this male that spent a couple of days in the moat feeding avidly on sloes

Another young male that was trapped, ringed and released - possibly in North Africa now

The size difference between the egret species is huge! No idea it was that great.

Must admit I thought the same, they don't look greatly bigger than Little Egrets in flight, then seeing that photo!
