Dungeness - 0630 - 0830hrs - cold, sunny, SE 5, hazy light - A two hour seawatch from the hide in the company of CP, JS, MC et al produced a steady flow of seabirds moving up-Channel across a choppy sea and in a bitingly cold wind. Most notable were good numbers of Fulmars, close flocks of Brent Geese and a scattering of ducks as follows: Fulmar 55, Gannet 40, Brent Goose 380, Red-throated Diver 80, auks 120, Kittiwake 90, Common Scoter 9, Wigeon 20, Shoveler 10, Teal 20, Pintail 2, Shelduck 2 and a lone wader, probably a Ringed Plover. Also, the resident Peregrine pair put on a show out over the sea chasing a pigeon.
