My accomodation for the 6 months... right in the middle of the reserve at the back of the car park

From July 21st up untill December 22nd I will have adopted a new local patch down at Dungeness Kent volunteering for the RSPB on a long term basis. Staying so close to the pits, and being the first person out on the reserve in the morning, I should be in with the chance to find one or two decent birds.... Squacco Heron, Glossy Ibis, Great spotted Cuckoo, Audoins Gull, Laughing Gull, Red footed Falcon, Woodchat Shrike, Melodious Warbler, Red rumped Swallow, Bee eater and Great Reed Warbler all seen so far in 2007.

My own predictions...

Penduline Tit
Tawny Pipit
Raddes Warbler
Short-toed Treecreeper
White winged Black tern (Not rare enough? all right then... Bridled)

Baleric Shearwater should be farily easy and Long tailed Skua should find its way onto my temporary patch list, both of which would be lifers.
