31st December, 2014. East Guldeford Levels, Scotney and Dungeness

We spent several hours walking out on the East Guldeford Levels but again no joy with the Little Bustard with good numbers of Golden Plovers, Curlews etc also 2-3 Marsh Harriers, 4 Common Buzzards and a Merlin.
We then moved onto Dungeness stopping briefly at Scotney where the Scaup was showing and plenty of feral type Geese.
Along Dengemarsh road just 1 Cattle Egret was present in the usual field, and just time to check out the ARC pit where a good selection of the usual Duck with 1 Goldeneye,but the highlight was a Kingfisher fishing close to the hide.
