Dungeness - 0745hrs - warm, dry and sunny, nw1 - A brief seawatch from the hide with Mothman and the Farmer delivered a steady flow of Gannets, ducks and a few Brents upchannel. On the land singing Mipits, Linnets and copulating Kestrels on the old light.
Seemed to be something of a Buzzard passage ongoing this morning with Hawkeye and the Joker noting 9 over the bird reserve.  I had 2 over Lade in the afternoon.
A pair of Garganey still on Burrowes and viewable from the visitors centre. Two Slav Grebes on ARC, plus Smew and Goldeneye and news of the first Swallow of the spring in off the sea this morning by the Patch. Chatted to the Luddites about their west African experience...
