Dungeness for the afternoon

Last Sunday I spent the afternoon down at Dungeness in Kent with Mick S and Richard S & co for some Gull action by the fishing boats.The regular 1st winter Caspian was pointed by Mick almost as soon as we arrived on site . See below

Good numbers of Kittiwake were seen off shore with one or two coming close like the one below.


Add in the 3 Great white Egrets on the Arc pits and some good banter with the boys it was a good afternoon.

 A grey and cloudy sky with light drizzle this morning at the valley as I done the circuit was quickly brighten up by 2 Brambling  going over, one near the top fields and one over the viewing area. Sadly still no Hawfinch or Firecrest so the year list stays at 104 but 2 Brambling in one day is good for here.

As for images the camera has been tucked away in it's bag so the below images are from last week in Norfolk at Holkham.
