Old Faithful

Dungeness - 0800hrs - cold, grey, sw5 - A choppy sea rarely makes for good seawatching and this morning was no exception with very little on the move apart from some close Gannets. Old Faithful the Glaucous Gull was again lounging about on the shingle as tho sun bathing in the tropics.
ARC/New Diggings - All the usual Smews, Goldeneyes and Great White Egret on New Diggings, while at least one Scandinavian Rock Pipit showing at the south end of ARC.
Lade - Hard work here due to a biting wind blowing across the water. Chiffchaff and Cetti`s Warblers in the willows.
Have had the Plovers moth trap on for 5 days over the past fortnight and not a sniff. However, down at the cafe one or two early moths are coming to light
