Weather change

Following a hectic weekend of 60th birthday celebrations (thanks again to Pat and the girls, plus the many family and friends who turned up) with calm, dry weather and few birds on the local patch it was a return to wet and windy conditions, but with a mild southerly airflow, so we headed down the road for an hour at the boats.
Dungeness - 0930hrs - A steady flow of Gannets and Sandwich Terns were moving/feeding offshore, plus 2 Bonxies, 15 Brents, 6 Wigeon, a pale phase Arctic Skua and a Mediterranean Gull.
Lade - A few Goldcrests and Chiffchaffs around the ponds, plus 5 Swallows and a House Martin over south lake was about it this afternoon on the migrant front.
