Dungeness - 0730hrs - cool, sunny, ne 3 - Joined TG and PB in the seawatch hide for 30 minutes during which time nothing much happened apart from a few Whimbrel and scoter moving up-Channel. However, at the Patch our first Black Tern of the year was wheeling over the boil along with 100 or so Common Terns. Passerines were virtually absent and a Sparrowhawk zipped along the power station wall.
Lade - Fairly quiet here too with the highlight being the first Cuckoo of the spring calling from the willow swamp. Also, four Whimbrel overhead and 20 Swallows over south lake.
