RSPB - 1000hrs - ARC pit delivered a distant Black-necked Grebe and a few Goldeneyes on the water, 3 LRPs and Dunlins at the south end and Goldcrests and Greater pecker amongst the pines by the water tower.
Greatstone Beach - 1130hrs At least 100 Knot and 50 Barwits were notable amongst the scurrying Sanderlings, Curlews and Oystercatchers. A 2nd summer Med Gull and 50 Sandwich Terns on the sands.
