1w Gannet past the fishing boats yesterday afternoon.
It seems though the world and his wife has been at Dungeness this weekend. Yesterdays sunny weather meant that the Gull roosts were constantly disturbed by walkers making the 1w Glaucous Gull and the 1w Caspian Gull difficult to locate. A short visit to the beach today in the wind and rain which didn't deter the numerous fisherman taking part the Dab championship. At sea the usual Gannets, Auks and kittiwakes but nothing of note.
At the reserve 1 of the 2 Long-eared Owls was showing, both were seen early morning, from Makepiece a Smew, 3 Goldeneye and a few dabblers. With rain still falling it was time for a full English.
This afternoon during a walk around the hayfields and Dengemarsh I managed ony 5 Meadow Pipits, 3 Reed Buntings, a Marsh Harrier and a few Crows. Galloways was equally disappointing.
At the Egret roost late afternoon 22 Little and 3 Great White Egrets came in, while 3 Marsh harriers headed towards the Oppen Pits.
