As I drove to Dungeness this morning there was still 20+ Waxwings at Johnson's Corner on the A2070 at Hamstreet, 60 were reported there this afternoon.
In Lydd turning on to Dungeness road 5 more Waxwings were feeding on Apples in the allotments.
A short look at the sea was all that was needed to know that not much was moving off shore just a few Auks and Kittiwakes.
From the causeway the Black-throated Diver could be seen on New Diggings and c200 Gadwall could be seen on the ARC Pit.
A walk around the reserve with TG saw 5 Smew(1 Drake), 1 red head Goosander, 4 Goldeneye, 4+ Marsh Harriers, 1 Great White Egret, 100s each of Wigeon, Teal, Shoveler, Pochard and Coot, lesser numbers of Tufted Duck and Pintail.
On the ARC from Hanson 2 Goldeneye, 1 Great White egret and 2 Marsh Harriers.
