Just Passing Through...

Dungeness - 0845hrs - cold, sunny, nw3 - A stroll down to the Patch revealed just a handful of Common Terns amongst the immature gulls. Two small parties of House Martins came in off the sea and a Blackcap was grounded along the power station wall. Wandered over to the Obs where the usual Black Redstarts, Wheatears and Stonechats noted.
ARC - 1430hrs - Three Hobbies hunting over the water along with 50 odd Swifts was about it. Along the access road another 2 Hobbies. Nothing of note on Burrowes.
ps: Another fly through Black Kite was seen this morning from Dengemarsh gully coming in off the sea (BP & MH) and went straight inland, while a Red-rumped Swallow passed over Hookers heading towards Burrowes never to be seen again (SB).
Moth activity continues to be poor to non-existent due to the cold temperatures.
