Little Gulls

Dungeness - 0900hrs - cold, grey, drizzle, se1 - Plenty of activity on the sea with hundreds of auks, including some large groups of Razorbills. Best of all though was up to 5 Little Gulls feeding just offshore. Also, 2 Common Scoters, several Red-throated Divers, 20 each of Kittiwakes and Gannets, and hundreds of Great Crested Grebes. Before I arrived DW had 2 Bonxies and a Med Gull, while the Glaucous Gull was reported later on.

Denge Beach 1600hrs - Checked out one of the occasionally used harrier roost sites this afternoon. None went down but 6 had a look before departing towards the bird reserve. A scattering of Green Woodpeckers, plus singles of Buzzard, Chiffchaff and Cetti`s Warbler was all I could muster.
