Do not wear pink if you want to attract birds. Hideously amateur is the best way to describe my attire on a trip to the Dungeness RSPB nature reserve recently. My business partner's careful selection of blend-in-with-everything black was wise. I am learning from my mistakes. We did, despite everything, see a snipe (highlight of the day for me), pochards, marsh harrier (possibly), great white egret, lapwings (lots), grebes, cormorants, tufted ducks and greylag geese.
