Dungeness - 0900hrs - mild, overcast, showery, sw 4 - Another grim old day with heavy showers rattling in on a blustery wind. There were plenty of roosting gulls on the shingle including a few Kittiwakes, an adult Yellow-legged Gull and a Little Gull. In the Trapping Area the Hume`s Leaf Warbler was still present but elusive, although at least I managed to hear a couple of bursts of the double call note.
ARC/New Diggings - 1500hrs - On New Diggings a Black-necked Grebe and two Smew were present, but I couldn`t find the 2 Black-throated Divers that were reported earlier. Over the road at least four Great White Egrets were scattered around the pit, plus two Marsh Harriers over and all the expected wildfowl. As the light went a steady flow of corvids headed to roost, along with three more Marsh Harriers.
