Dengemarsh - 0745hrs - mild, cloudy, s 5 - We walked the gully first thing, but there was little of note in a blustery wind apart from a few Blackbirds, Song Thrushes, Goldfinches, two Siskins, Chiffchaff, Goldcrest, Kestrel, Sparrowhawk and Kingfisher.
The field adjacent to Springfield Bridge held a small flock of Linnets, plus several Mipits, Skylarks and Reed Buntings. A flock of 300 Lapwings were kept mobile by passing Marsh Harriers, while the two Cattle Egrets were briefly on the flood.
Scotney - Nothing of any note here apart from the usual wildfowl and feral geese.
Back home two more Siskins flew down the coast along with 50 Goldfinches.
Dungeness - 1430-1545hrs - A session at the fishing boats with DW, PB, MH, DG et al yielded a steady passage of Gannets and Kittiwakes, plus several auks, two Med Gulls, two Little Gulls, two Red-throated Divers and four juvenile Pomarine Skuas, two of which cut in nice and close chasing gulls. A Grey Seal was seen offshore.
