Goldcrests at last

Dungeness - warm, dry, cloudy, NE 2 - A wander along the beach from Jarman`s to the lighthouse garden delivered few grounded migrants apart from Linnets, Goldfinches, Mipits and Skylarks, plus a trickle of the aforementioned overhead along with small numbers of Siskin, Redpoll, Chaffinch and Reed Bunting. The scrub around the point harboured the first decent numbers of Goldcrests of  autumn, some of which were being processed at the Obs along with Firecrest and a Yellow-browed Warbler earlier. At the southern end of the Trapping Area Song Thrush, Blackbird and a Ring Ouzel noted.
  At Lade a few more Goldcrests in the Willow Swamp and a couple through the garden fir trees this morning. Also noted in the garden a small flock of Goldfinches on the feeders.
