Slim Pickings

Dungeness - 0645hrs - Chilly, ne3, overcast - A grim morning with dull overcast conditions and poor viz out across the Channel - just the job for an hour in the seawatch hide... Very little on the move apart from a trickle of divers, Gannets, a merganser, a few scoters, Sandwich Terns, 5 Teal and mixed flock of 12 Curlews and Knots.
RSPB - 1300hrs - Hard work here too with the increasing wind forcing any passerines into cover. On ARC Spoonbill and LRP still present, while plenty of harrier activity over Dengemarsh; couldn't find the Long-tailed Duck on Burrowes amongst the legions of gulls and Cormorants.
