A few recent birds

Last Sunday Matthew Prince watched what he was sure was a Rough-legged Buzzard for 10 minutes along the Cadborough path from West Undercliff in Rye. On the same day a Red Kite was seen well over the cliff-line at Scotts Float, two White Storks were reported on Romney Marsh, and a Kentish Plover was found on the beach at Greatstone, still there on Monday when a Woodcock was seen at Houghton Green. In the Pannel valley a Garganey has been present all week and the first Little Ringed Plover was found today. At Rye Harbour today a male Wheatear was showing well near the river mouth, the two "resident" Black-necked Grebes were in summer finery at the SW end of Long Pit, and a "probable" Ring-necked Duck was reported on Castle Water this afternoon but flew off and couldn't be relocated. "Honourable birds" at Dungeness during the week include two Light Orange Underwing moths and (probably) two Large Tortoiseshells.
