Slim Pickings

Lade 0900hrs - warm, dry and sunny w2 - A wander around both pits delivered very little apart from an increase in Teal numbers to over 200 and 8 Goldeneyes. The fine weather brought 3 Cetti`s Warbler into the open and plenty of common residents into song. Several Marsh Harriers and a Buzzard were hunting the airport fields.
Dungeness - 1500hrs - A late seawatch from the boats was disappointing with only a few auks, divers and Kitts milling around the Point. Still hundreds of Cormorants and Great Crested Grebes on the sea. No sign of the 2nd winter Glaucous Gull which hasn't been seen for over a week now.
On ARC Long-tailed duck, Smews and Bewick`s Swan reported this afternoon.
