Dungeness - 0900hrs Visibility remained poor off the point with a few close Gannets and divers the only birds of note. A dead porpoise on the beach. No sign of anything much on the land.
Lade Bay - 1045hrs At least 200 Turnstones scattered around the bay, well up on normal so presumably a passage underway. All the usual beach waders noted.
Lade Pits - 1130hrs Only birds of note here were a singing Chiffchaff and a Goldcrest in the willows.
Walland Marsh - 1430hrs At least a thousand Goldies flushed by a pair of Peregrines and all the usual harriers, wildfowl and waders. More Turnstones here and on Burrowes on the way home.
