Dungeness - mild, cloudy, sw 3 - At the Patch first thing at least 1,000 Black-headed Gulls were feeding over the boil and along the scum line, plus a 1st winter Little Gull and a late Sandwich Tern heading west. Offshore a lone Bonxie passed down-Channel amongst scores of fishing Gannets. An adult Yellow-legged Gull was on the beach by the Fish Hut and a Dartford Warbler showed briefly by the Britannia scrub.
A check of Lade pits revealed four new Goldeneyes on north lake, plus two Great White Egrets and a Marsh Harrier over. Yesterdays Goldcrests were absent, having probably moved inland.
