North Easterly ruins the day

Little or no movement at sea today. Just 3 Brent Geese, a few Common Scoter and 16 Mediterranean Gulls past, with a few Sandwich Terns, Common Terns and Gannets tooing and froing off shore. Around the bushes 3 Chiffchaffs and a House martin over. At the ARC Pit from Hanson 2 Little Ringed Plovers, 6 Swallows, 2 House Martins and 2 Marsh Harriers. On a wind swept Burrowes Pit the Long Tailed Duck was the only bird of note. Scotney was an avian desert barring the Herring Gulls.
Even a scout around another Nightingale Tetrad found very little due to the cold strong North Easterly wind.
