After success with the Night Heron last night I had another look this morning en route to Hengistbury Head, but the bird was a fair bit further away, roosting in a tree on the far bank of the Stour. Still a good view though as it nodded off in the branches. Like every other day this week, Hengistbury was fine and bright, and a Skylark on the golf course allowed an unusually close approach. Heading for Wick, a newly arrived Sedge Warbler was extremely vocal - and visible. Other migrants were few in number thought Whitethroats were ubiquitous and a single male Whichat was my first of the year.
