Hume`s Warbler

Dungeness - mild and overcast, W3 - We joined half a dozen other optimists at the fishing boats this morning with yesterdays auk fest in mind; however, as is often the case two consecutive seawatching days are rarely the same. It did produce hundreds of Red-throated Divers, Gannets, Cormorants, Kittiwakes and auks (mostly Guillemots and only a few Razorbills) rounding the point or fishing offshore, plus singles of Mediterranean Gull, Common Scoter, Merganser and Bonxie.
Lade   - There was a steady trickle of twitchers to site to see the Hume`s Warbler which was still present, but elusive, around the ponds and only occasionally calling. The Red-necked Grebe remained on north lake while six Goldeneyes and two Caspian Gulls (an adult and a 1st winter) were among the gull roost on south lake.
