Slavonian Grebe

Lade - 0900hrs -  mild, sunny, sw 5 - The wind returned overnight making for another blustery day across the peninsula, but at least it was largely dry, and very mild. Most of the wildfowl were hugging the margins in the lee of the wind and a couple of Marsh Harriers were working the fields by the airport. On north lake the Slavonian Grebe was still present but difficult as it kept close to the opposite bank and at times melted into the small clumps of reeds.
Dungeness - 1400hrs - The high tide gull roost contained a 2nd winter Caspian Gull amongst several hundred large gulls, while the 1st winter Glaucous Gull continued to patrol the foreshore. A couple of Little Gulls moved west and there was at least 20 more at the Patch.
RSPB - On the bird reserve the Glossy Ibis was noted on the horse paddocks between Boulderwall and Cockles Bridge and the Penduline Tits were present at Hookers (per SB).
