First thing this morning at The Point conditions seemed perfect for some grounded and overhead migrants, so it was very disappointing to see just 3 Fieldfares, a Chiffchaff, a Goldcrest and a few Blackbirds in a wander around the bushes and then drizzle started in earnest. 
North Thames CR Herring Gull on the beach this afternoon.
As the sea was flat calm I was a little surprised when AJG called me to say there was some movement off shore. I quickly joined him in the sea watch hide.
