Slim pickings

Dungeness - 0800hrs - warm, dry and sunny, sw 2 - A circuit of the point produced a few migrants the best of which was a single Redstart in scrub mid way down Long Pits and a singing Nightingale. Elsewhere a scattering of Willow Warblers, Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps in the Trapping area, several Chiffchaffs in the lighthouse garden and two Yellow Wagtails and Swallows over, but to be fair it was slim pickings for two hours slogging across the shingle.
Lade - Wasn't much better here either with just a Chiffchaff and Swallow on the migrant front, two Med Gulls over, a Sparrowhawk and Kestrel, plus unusually for this time of year, a Greater pecker by the ponds.
