8 Waxwings (in tree by Ash Close, Godinton Park) seen by the parents.

1 Black-necked Grebe (Hookers Pit), 3 Goldeneyes (Females), 1 Little Grebe, 1 Great Crested Grebe, 3 Marsh Harriers, 2 Ringed Plovers (ARC Pit), 1 Snipe, 5 Black-tailed Godwits (ARC Pit), 2 Redshanks, 1 Redwing, 1 Cetti's Warbler, 2 Bearded Tit, 1 Tree Sparrow. No sign of the Bluethroat though.
A foray into East Sussex resulted in us connecting with one of the male Kentish Plovers on the new saltmarsh area at Rye Harbour NR. A lifer for Angela. A nice mix of other waders too: Avocets, Ringed Plovers, Redshanks, Dunlin, 1 Grey Plover.
