|Greenshank with Redshank on the Adur Saltings|
Thursday 29 December. A quickly arranged trip to Dungeness with John King where we saw the female Stejneger's Stonechat, male Ring-necked Duck, a male and 2 female Goosanders, 7 Tree Sparrows and a Marsh Harrier but otherwise it was very quiet with hardly any gulls about and we didn't even bump into a Great White Egret. Nice to have a brief chat with Martin Casemore too.
