Lots of Thrushes first thing this morning in the bushes by the track to Dengemarsh, mainly Song Thrushes and Blackbirds but at least 1 Ring Ouzel. At Denge Marsh the 6 Cattle Egrets were seen distantly, also 3 Great White Egrets, 3 Common Snipe, a Ruff and the usual wildfowl.
A Yellow-browed Warbler was trapped at the observatory but surprisingly little else. Another Yellow-browed Warbler was seen and heard along the Pilot Path per AJG, with another spending all day in Dave Bunney's garden, which he kindly invited me into.
