Poms and Serin

Littlestone - warm, dry and sunny, NE 3 - Another trip down the road early afternoon to see the Serin really delivered as it sat out in the open singing its head off for at least 20 minutes, after which it hurtled away, presumably to feed, but soon returned to the pine clump opposite the entrance to the golf club.

Lade bay - Following news of Poms in the Channel further west this afternoon (thanks to MH for the tip off, as my Twitter feed had gone down)  I spent an hour between 1630-1730hrs scanning from the boardwalk and was rewarded with a flock of three distant Pomarine Skuas crossing the bay just after 1700hrs; although I should`ve carried on as 12 went past Dungeness at 1741hrs! The strong easterly obviously done the trick and I also noted a steady trickle of Common and Sandwich Terns, Gannets, two Grey Plovers and a Fulmar.
