Firecrest clear out

Dungeness - 0800hrs  - cool, cloudy, n2 - A much quieter morning for migrants with only a handful each of Firecrests and Chiffchaffs remaining in the scrub around the old light, plus a singing Black Redstart. Between the lifeboat station and the new lighthouse 4 Wheatears, a pair of Stonechats and a sprinkling of singing Linnets, Mipits, Skylarks and Pied Wagtails. Also noted Stock Dove, Kestrel and a Raven over `cronking`. Unsurprisingly, there was negative news from the early morning seawatchers.

Lade - Similar here with all the Firecrests and Chiffs having moved on overnight. Another Swallow over south lake and more singing Linnets was about it.
