More Pallas`s Warblers

Dungeness - 0830hrs - Mild, cloudy, se2 - A wander around the point delivered a few migrants in the shape of Goldcrests in the scrub with one or two Redpolls, Siskins and Bramblings overhead. Barney flushed a few Song Thrushes, Redwings and a Woodcock from the moat and that was about it really. However, at Dengemarsh Gully a Pallas`s Warbler was reported (BM) while a long anticipated Waxwing flew over Boulderwall (SB).
1400hrs - A call from DW and another showy Pallas`s, this time in the lighthouse garden. It appeared to have a paler rump than yesterdays bird so was considered to be different, but once again it performed to order low down, and in good light, feeding amongst the tree mallows. A Firecrest was also noted in the garden.
