Slow going

Dungeness - 0610 - 0830hrs - cool, cloudy, SE3 - Considering the time of year and the weather conditions a seawatch from the hide along with a clutch of other hopefuls seemed like the obvious option this morning, but ended up being rather pedestrian by Dungeness standards. A steady trickle of Gannets, Common Scoters, auks, Sandwich and a few Common Terns made up the numbers, plus around 150 Bar-tailed Godwits, 10 Whimbrels and a party of Knot, most of which were way out over the sea. Also noted, three Red-throated Divers, three Kittiwakes,  two Fulmars, two Arctic Skuas, two Curlews and several Oystercatchers. 

Lade pits was also fairly quiet with a few more singing Linnets, Common Whitethroats and Reed Warblers being the only additions.
