Drift Migrants

Dungeness - 0730hrs - warm, misty, light airs - A few drift migrants grounded around the point first thing included several Willow Warblers, Common Whitethroats and Wheatears, a Spotted Flycatcher and Common Redstart. At the Patch 20 Common Terns and a Yellow-legged Gull amongst the throng.

                               Wheatear and Redstart at Dungeness

Lade  - Similar fare here with Wheatears and two Whinchats on the Desert and 10 Willow Warblers in the Willow Swamp. On the beach this evening the Sandwich Tern count topped at 280, otherwise all the expected waders and gulls.
