More Manxies

ARC - 1200hrs - cool,cloudy, showery, w6 - The autumnal weather continues... From Hanson hide the adult Little Stint showed well alongside 10 Dunlins, 6 LRPs and 4 Common Sands. Hobby and Sparrowhawk noted. Last of the Summer Wine turned up on their usual Monday outing from north Kent and proceeded to take lunch (smelt tasty too) in the hide. A few more sandpipers and a Greater pecker from the Screen hide.
Dungeness - 1300hrs Upwards of 50 Manxies west past the point this morning heading into a `big sea`. I had 5 in an hour from the seawatch hide, plus 100 Gannets, 50 Common Terns, 10 Sandwich Terns, 2 Fulmars and single Kittiwake and Common Scoter.
Moths - Trapping temporarily ceased due to the inclement weather.

Dungeness - Who`d be a fisherman on a day like today...
