Playing catch up!

Being otherwise occupied yesterday, I missed all the migrants at Dungeness, so I was delighted when I pulled up at The Point this morning to see 2 Wheatears feeding by the car park. On the way out to the sea watch hide 2 more Wheatears and a "Rubicola Stonechat".
08.30-09.30 Sea Watch
Red-throated Diver: 3W
Fulmar: 1E
Brent Geese: 478E
Common Scoter:   4E
Red-breasted Merganser: 7E
Sandwich Tern:  12E   3W
Also a few Gannets and Kittiwakes tooing and froing.

 On shore around The Point 8+ Wheatears, 6+ Firecrests, 3+ Black Redstarts, 6+ Chiffchaffs and then the rain came. At the southern end of the ARC Pit at least 1 White Wagtail in a party of c25 Pied Wagtails and a very bedraggled Rock Pipit probably Scandinavian flushed by a Marsh Harrier.
