Rained off

Dungeness - wet and windy all day - In showery conditions first thing we did a circuit of Long Pits where the only migrants of note in the bushes were a few Lesser and Common Whitethroats, Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs. Out on the Desert a couple of Wheatears and several Meadow Pipits, plus a trickle of Swallows south. On the way back home, in heavy rain, I stopped at Kerton Road around 0900hrs and was surprised to see one of the Ospreys flying across the Desert towards ARC.
  The rain set in throughout the day but relented just before lights out when a visit to the local patch delivered another Osprey sighting of a bird flying towards Greatstone, presumably to a roost site somewhere down the coast...
