Dungeness - sunshine, cloud, showers, cool, w3 - 0745hrs - A quick look at the sea and Patch revealed pretty much as yesterday with a steady flow of Gannets and a couple of hundred Common Terns respectively. Very little on the land apart from a few Mipits, Linnets and a Kestrel.
1630hrs - A 90 minute seawatch from the concrete road proved more than worthwhile with a westward movement of 200 Gannets, 200 Common Terns, 50 Sandwich Terns, 7 Manxies and a Whimbrel plus a terrific view of a Bonxie along the beach which sent the loitering gulls into a frenzy. Two porpoises were feeding just offshore and a flock of 35 Common Scoters passed up-Channel.
The only other local news of note concerned a stork over New Romney this morning seen heading towards Dungeness (per OL).
