A Hat Trick... of Dips

Lade - 1000hrs - cool, cloudy, se2 - Slim pickings here with a few Swifts over south pit and a calling Cuckoo of note. Just as I was giving up a Greenshank flew over calling, took one look at the lack of edge habitat and pushed on northwards.
Dungeness - 1400hrs - Managed to successfully dip a Bee-eater that flew from ARC to the point and then disappeared somewhere over the Trapping Area. Despite a good scout around the flying paintbox could not be relocated. Scores of Swifts and House Martins over ARC and at least 2 Hobbies.
I wonder what southern overshoot will make an appearance tomorrow...
ps: Two Poms and an Arctic Skua were reported from the Point this morning.
