Missed Poms

Dungeness - 1100 & 1600hrs, warm dry and sunny, se 1-3 - Couldnt make the early watch which recorded several Poms and a dozen or so Arctic Skuas, plus a number of Black and Little Terns and divers.
Did a short, late morning watch with Wednesday Barry as around 100 Common Scoters pulsed through. Also, up-Channel, 15 Eiders, 3 Black-throated and 2 Red-throated Divers, 10 Whimbrel, 3 Little and 50 Common Terns.
An afternoon scan from the concrete road with the Joker and Weekend Birder, in hazy light, proved entertaining but short on birds, with just a few scoters, divers and Gannets noted.
