2 out of 3

 A trip to Reculver to see Shorelark, Hooded Crow and Snow Bunting was partially successful as failed on the Shorelarks. Apparently flushed by a photographer (not guilty). The Snow Buntings showed well on the way out but had gone on the return trip due hordes of day trippers and dogs. Dont go to Reculver on a Bank Holiday.   The Hooded Crow was seen at extreme range from the sea wall not very satisfactory views. Also seen Stonechat and good numbers of waders on the beach Grey Plover, Sanderling, Turnstone, Dunlin and Ring Plover all being regularily disturbed. At sea 40+ Red-throated Divers moved west along with plenty of Wigeon and Dark Bellied Brent Geese. A bonus on the way home as i joined the M2 there were at least 8 Waxwings in the roadside bushes.
