Lade - 0700hrs - cool, wet, windy, w 5 - A shocking morning with strong winds and rain moving in overnight and throughout the morning making for a poor catch in the trap. However, Middle-barred Minor and Bordered Sallow were new for the year.
There was little of note over the pits due to the weather.
Dungeness - 1400hrs - With the sun breaking through we did a 45 minute seawatch from the boats which produced a few terns and Gannets and little else. The Patch was quiet too with just a handful of Common Terns, although a Roseate Tern was reported late afternoon.
