Dungeness - 0900hrs - mild, cloudy, sw 4 - Checked the Patch where all the usual gulls were milling over the boil and on the beach. Joined PB and DW briefly from the fishing boats where a steady stream of Red-throated Divers, Kittiwakes and auks were streaming westwards past the point; a Great Northern Diver was noted earlier.
Rye Harbour - Access along the main track was restricted to the visitor centre as a section of the road past the sluice was washed away during the recent tidal surge. Work is set to continue for some time yet to repair the damage. All the expected waders were on Flat Beach and 2 Long-tailed Ducks were reported from Ternery Pool.
