Mediterranean Gulls

Dungeness - 0745hrs - Mild, foggy, s2 - Walked down to the Patch where difficult viewing due to banks of thick fog rolling in off the Channel. Several Med Gulls in the murk over the boil calling, along with Common Terns.
Lade - 21 species of moths in the trap last night, but nothing of any quality. Warm and sunny by late morning. Working in the garden today Mediterranean Gulls were regularly heard and seen overhead, probably from birds dispersing from the Rye colony. Hobby and Sparrowawk over too.
ARC - 1500hrs - Loads of feral geese and swans on the pit plus eclipse ducks such as Pochard, Teal and Shoveler. Marsh Harrier and Hobby from Screen hide, Green Woodpecker with juvs and 50 odd House Martins over the water.
