A dead Sanderling

Lade  - 0700hrs - cool, cloudy, ne 3 - A poor night in the garden moth trap due to a chilly easterly airflow, although Light Emerald was new for the year. A circuit of the local patch yielded little of note apart from a dead Sanderling on the beach.

Dungeness - 1000hrs - Joined DW in the Patch hide for a scan of 50 or so Common Terns over the boil and several hundred larger gulls, mainly Herrings, loafing on the beach, otherwise it was pretty quiet. An afternoon visit was equally as steady.
