Stormy Weather

Dungeness - 0900hrs - Gale force westerly, showers, mild, sunny/cloudy - Another day when the weather dominated proceedings with gale force westerly to north-westerly winds battering the peninsula. Lade Bay was most impressive with the wind whipping the tops off the waves as the tide receded, while a rainbow arcing out over the bay lasted all too briefly. Checked the gulls out from the concrete road without finding any of the specialities. Offshore the usual movements of Kitts, Gannets, grebes, auks and divers.

ARC/New Diggings - 1500hrs - Some stuff as yesterday but difficult to observe in the buffeting wind; Long-tailed Duck, Smew, Gwegret, etc...
