Dungeness and West Hythe

My other day on my week off decided to head down to Dungeness first stop was the farm where apair of Cattle Egret though only 1 was about feeding in the hay bales before flying off to feed around the back of the farmyard. Then headed to the main reserve where all the waterfowl was out on the water especially good numbers of Smews with the most I seen together at one place quite happy fishing in the water sometimes close to the hide. Further out big numbers of Shoveler, Wigeon, Gadwall with a few Goldeneyes and Pintails hiding in the flock.

Then headed to West Hythe on the Canal where there was a nice Goosander showing well in the afternoon sunshine which did't dissapoint showing well and with at least 5 Little Egrets on the Canal and a few thrushes seemed a nice urban nature spot.
