5AA1 a regular on the beach
07.00- 11.00 from the fishing boats with AJG
Brent Goose: 9 W
Common Scoter: 1 W
Great-crested Grebe: 25 around
Gannet 139: W
Dunlin: 1 W
Merlin: 1 in
Great Skua: 7 W
Arctic Skua: 4 W/around
Yellow-legged Gull: 2 ads in roost
Mediterranean Gull: 3 W
Sandwich Tern: 90 W
Common Tern: 1 W
Swallow: 5 in
At the ARC the islands have all but disappeared, so no waders but plenty of the common wildfowl, along with a Great White Egret, 2 Little Egrets and a Cetti's Warbler in front the hide. 2 Great White Egrets on New Diggings from the causeway but no sign of the Cattle Egret in short search.
Back at the beach this afternoon there was very little passage on the sea. A check of Trektellen http://www.trektellen.nl/trektelling.asp?telpost=148 shows that Cap Gris Nez had quite a good day to day, even without the North Westerlies forecast for tonight and tomorrow, so hopefully we will have a very good day there tomorrow.
