A Quieter Day

Lade  - cool, dry and sunny, nw 3 - In between cooking breakfast for guests we had a nice little garden cameo with migrants attracted to the fir trees basking in the early morning sun. The star of the show was a Firecrest, plus several Chiffchaffs, Blackcaps and Goldcrests.

                                  Black Redstart, Dungeness                                   

                                Chiffchaff, Plovers

Dungeness - 1000hrs -  A wander around the bushes at the point revealed very little apart from a few Chiffchaffs, Robins, Goldfinches, a couple of Goldcrests and a Black Redstart, while the Wryneck was seen earlier at the southern end of the Trapping Area. A Raven over the power station got the full treatment from a pair of Peregrines. There were a number of visiting, long-faced birders searching for yesterdays flycatcher, but to no avail.
An hour at the boats this afternoon with PB and TG delivered the usual half dozen Arctic Skuas offshore, plus a trickle of Gannets and terns.
