Dungeness - 0745hrs - cool, patchy fog, sw 3 - Another largely fruitless hour seawatching from the hide with New Boy produced a trickle of divers, scoters and 10 Brents up-Channel, plus Sandwich Terns, Med Gull and a few Gannets milling around. A cursery check around the Old Light for passerines turned up a few regulation Black Redstarts, Wheatears and Mipits.
Lade pits was all quiet with only 5 Goldeneyes and a singing Chiff of note.
Called in to see, She-who-must-be-obeyed and Mr Fothergill this afternoon, for a small-ships tea and a gossip. Paid homage to a deceased Goldcrest that had come to grief against the lounge window.
