Kearton Road Pit

0645hrs - cool, dry, sunny, e3 Checked out the northern end of Kearton Road gravel pit this morning. A lake has formed with two islands, one of which looks promising for breeding Black-headed Gulls with at least 4 pairs courting. Two pairs of Lapwings and Oystercatchers definitely holding territory while migrant Grey Plover and Greenshank around the margins.
Elsewhere, claims of an Iceland Gull offshore following a fishing boat, a few ducks and Whimbrels past the Point, a possible Red-foot on the bird reserve and a singing Gropper in a tiny patch of rough ground in Queens Road, Littlestone.
Only one moth in the garden trap last night.
