Dungeness - 0645hrs - mild, cloudy, w 2 - The first birds we were greeted by as we arrived at the point this morning were three Ravens flying around, tumbling and cronking loudly. Along the power station wall several Pied Wagtails and Mipits, plus a Grey Wagtail on the sewage plant. At the Patch the two Iceland Gulls were amongst the melee of gulls along with at least four Mediterranean Gulls.
From the seawatch hide nothing much was happening apart from a trickle of Gannets, Red-throated Divers, auks, Common Scoters, Med Gulls and Fulmars, although a Great Northern Diver went through earlier (LG).
Elsewhere today around the peninsula, Slavonian and Black-necked Grebes, Ring-necked Duck, Long-eared Owl, Smew and White-fronts were reported from the bird reserve, plus a Black Redstart in the gully and Tundra Geese at Scotney (PB et al).
