Lade - 0630hrs - sunshine and showers, cool, sw5 - Did the monthly WeBS count this morning with most of the ducks huddled behind the willows out of the strong wind. Increasing numbers of Shovelers was of note. Hardly any moths in the trap last night due to the poor weather.
Dungeness - A couple of seawatches from the concrete road this afternoon delivered a steady flow of mainly Gannets, Common Terns and a Manxie (at least 9 others seen by the Joker). Several Porpoises also just off shore. On the bird reserve Wood Sandpiper, Ruff and Little Stint continued to show on ARC.
