After the Lord Mayor`s Show...

Lade - 0930hrs - mild, 11C, cloudy w2 - After the excitement of yesterday it was back to more normal fare today. Was surprised to see several deep snow drifts still intact at the back end of south pit and 100 Wigeons and Teals sat on ice by the reedbed; much of the middle section of the pits was still iced over too.
Dungeness - 1500hrs An hour seawatch from the concrete road with MH, in poor light and with the foghorn blasting away, revealed a steady flow of gulls, Cormorants, Gannets, Kitts, Red-throated Divers and auks around the Point, or feeding just offshore. There was no sign of the Glaucous Gull.
