Lade - 0700hrs - mild, dry, sunny - A wander around the storm beaches produced several grounded Chiffchaffs and half a dozen more calling from gardens hereabouts. A light passage of Mipits and Swallows south. A belated WeBS count was notable for 58 Great Crested Grebes.
In Ashford this morning two more Chiffs in the churchyard and 3 in the back garden at Plovers.
ARC - 1100hrs - From Hanson the only waders of note were the long-staying adult and juv Little Stints and 5 Dunlins. Plenty of Sand Martins and Swallows over the water and all the usual wildfowl. From the Willow trail more Chiffchaffs, Long-tailed Tits and a single Spotted Flycatcher.
The Pectoral Sandpiper was reported from Burrowes.
