A Disappointing Day at Dunge

I made the choice today having a lay in, with the last 2 mornings bringing excellent sea watches, it could not happen again today, and it didn't. When I arrived at the hide the occupants informed in no uncertain terms that there was sea passage today.  Just a few distant Bonxies and a couple of Divers and the Terns and Gannets tooing and froing off shore. 
At least the Wheatears like the anti predator fence!
A plod around the reserve found little of note. A northern Wheatear at Christmas Dell, a Green Sandpiper and a Common Tern on Dengemarsh, a few Swallows and the obligatory Marsh Harriers.
On the ARC Pit from Hanson the Long-tailed Duck, 2 Little Ringed Plovers and little else. At the south end 2 more LRPs, 2 Yellow Wagtails and a Common Snipe.
Another hours sea watch from the fishing boats produced just a few Terns and Gannets.
A look at Scotney on the way found nothing of note.
