Weather change

Dungeness - cold, grey, s 4 - With rain on the way we joined DW and MH at the fishing boats for an hour where the brisk southerly and high tide had pushed plenty of gulls close to shore feeding in the surf. All the common species noted, plus Kittiwakes, an adult Med Gull and the 1st winter Glaucous Gull. Auks were streaming west, mainly Razorbills, with over 1,000 logged during the first hour along with Kittiwakes and Gannets, 500 plus Cormorants and a couple of Fulmars.

                               Kittiwake, Dungeness

Lade - We checked the lakes before the rain set in, but there was no change to the numbers and variety of wildfowl and gulls on offer from yesterday.
