Dungeness wouldn't be Dungeness without its Wheatears, whether they be early spring migrants, big beefy late spring Greenlands, those that stay to breed or the protracted autumn departees. The are all good in my book. This past week saw a modest dribble of white-arses through the area with just the one pair holding territory. Dungeness is full of industrial bric-a-brac which lends itself to being perched on by these smart birds, and also adds a touch of 'something else' to any photograph. There is another option for obtaining an image, and that is when the birds are trapped for scientific study.
