Tree Sparrows

Dungeness - 0900hrs - cool, sunny, e5 - A 90 minute seawatch from the hide delivered a steady flow of common gulls, Cormorants and Gannets, plus our first Red-throated Diver of the autumn, eight Brents, five Kittiwakes, 20 eastbound Mediterranean Gulls, several auks, 15 Common Scoters, a Wigeon, three Dunlins, 10 Swallows out, a Grey Seal and five Porpoises. The land was very quiet, due in part to the brisk wind.
Walland Marsh  - We headed inland to Midley in search of Tree Sparrows for the guests and noted 20 or more around the feeders along with a number of finches. There was little else on the arable lands apart from a few flocks of Lapwings, Starlings and gulls.
  In summary, a profitable three day bird tour for Roy, Penny and Peter with 103 species noted, plus plenty of anecdotes and laughter along the way.
Lade - An hour over the pits this afternoon failed to relocate the Osprey.
