It's only March!

08.05-08.40 from the sea watch hide:
Red-throated Diver: 4W     2E
Fulmar: 3W   1E
Gannet: c25 off shore
Brent Goose: 92E
Peregrine: 1 in
Black Redstart: 2 behind hide on perimeter fence.
Harbour Porpoise: 1 off shore
The light house garden was seemingly devoid of avian life as was most of The Point.
Scotney turned up 4 Avocets at the Kent end, a visit to The Midrips saw a few Oystercatchers, 7 Redshank, a Dunlin and few pairs of Shelduck. Dengemarsh Gully was equally quiet. Most of the long stayers were reported on the reserve today, but the Hume's Leaf Warbler was no show for the second day in a row.
An hour or so in the Plodland garden sky watching saw 2 Marsh Harriers, a Common Buzzard and Grey Heron of note, but no Kites.  
Nothing came into my camera range today, and as there seems to be loads of pictures of the Pembroke Great Spotted Cuckoo on the net, I thought I'd join in by posting an image of one I took at Brooklands Park Lancing, West Sussex in April 2005.
