Sedge Warbler

First thing this morning I went as far as the sea watch hide as there were several parties of far eastern fisherman hoping to catch supplies for there restaurants. 
There were no Gulls or Terns on the beach and very few over the boil. In another visit this afternoon 3 Mediterranean Gulls among roosting Gulls on the Beach and couple more off shore also 3+ Harbour Porpoises off shore.
In 3 visits today to the ARC the highlights were a first summer Little Gull, 2 Little Ringed Plovers (adult and a Juvenile), 6 Little Egrets, 2 Marsh Harriers and c30 Sand martins through. 
At Dengemarsh viewed from Springfield Bridge 3 Marsh Harriers, a pair of Sedge Warblers entertained me feeding there young with constant supply of what looks like newly emerged Damselfly's. The Common Terns seemed to be catching a good supply of small fish for there young.
