Pale-bellied Brent

Dungeness - 1000hrs - mild, overcast, w 2 - Joined the seawatchers from the boats for half an hour where there was a steady westwards passage of Brent Geese on the go, including a pale-bellied individual which I think was a first for me here. Also on the move a number of Gannets, Kittiwakes and Common Scoter, plus single figures of Bonxie, Red-throated Diver, and Little Gull, 2 Red-breasted Mergansers and Tufted Ducks. Several parties of Starlings came in and a party of 50 Goldfinches coasted west.
Previously a Red-necked Grebe and a Snow Bunting were noted.

Lade - Checked the pits this afternoon but all was quiet apart from a couple of Chiffchaffs in the buddleia beside north pit. On the bay all the usual waders returning to feed on the mud plus 2 late Sandwich Terns.
