Stubby Tail

The tail less 1W Glaucous Gull at Dungeness waited for the sun to make a brief appearance this afternoon before posing on the fishermans hut. From the beach huge numbers of Red-throated Divers moving east (300 in ten minutes at 11.30 A.M. and still good numbers moving at 2.30 P.M.). Also numerous Auks moving west (Those identified were all Guillemots). In a search of the gull roosts on the beach no Caspian Gulls were found. On the ARC Pit  1 Red head Smew, 2 Red head Goosander and a Bittern inflight over the road. On Walland Marsh 160+ Bewick Swans, 5 Egyptian Geese, 27 Corn Buntings, 3 Marsh Harriers and 6+ Tree Sparrows on the feeders.
