4G your joking! 3G would be nice!

5 of a flock of 6 Pomarine Skuas this morning
Arriving at the sea watch a little before 07.00, to find BM and some botanist bloke from Surrey had already seen 12 Poms fly east, I should have guessed it was going to be one of those days.
At 08.30 BM and the Surrey bloke went to the observatory to do some sky watching, leaving me an AJG at the sea watch hide. 09.20 a single Pom flew east, Great! At the same time it seems half of Dungeness were trying to contact us at the hide to tell us a Montagu's Harrier was behind us! No mobile service! B*****! at 09.45 a fine flock of 6 Poms majestically flew east, just as Bee-eater was perched up on the edge of the trapping area for ten minutes! once again no mobile service! double B*****! A plod around the trapping area and long pits failed to relocate it! I went home for lunch and with a visit to the dentist this afternoon not the best of days, but the Poms are brilliant birds. At least the North Downs and Beyond bloke connected with all the goodies today! Well deserved Steve!
