White-beaked Dolphins

Lade  - mild, cloudy, drizzle, sw 2 - Plenty of warblers around the local patch including the first Garden Warbler of the season. Mockmill was full of Sedge Warblers, but still only a couple of Whitethroats in song. Elsewhere, 50 Swallows and 10 Sand Martins on south lake, Wheatear, Mipit and Stonechat on the Desert.
Dungeness - An hour in the seawatch hide was largely uneventful due to poor visibility, apart from a pod of White-beaked Dolphins that showed briefly as they followed a small group of diving Gannets. The dolphins had been around for most of the early morning feeding just off the main cardinal buoy.
Lade - Had another look through the hirundines this afternoon, but there was nothing of note apart from the addition of five Swifts. Working in the garden today Med Gulls were constantly heard and a Whimbrel went over calling.
