Dungeness Monday starring Malcom McVail as the get away driver in this tale of unrequited twitching,target birds Bewick swans and Penduline tits.Ten years ago a day that included Little Egret,Great white Egret,Bittern x2,Marsh Harrier,Long tailed Duck and Glaucous Gull would have been marvellous ,well it was pretty good today too but the targets did not show until  we had left and were in West Hythe watching the Rough Legged Buzzard.
GLAUCOUS GULL Complete with new tail he may be able to go back up north next year now.
GLAUCOUS GULL in flight this is now a second winter bird I think and will eventually look like this.

Theres another storm warning out for tomorrow so the sea wall at the Hoe will be closed all day,but it should be spectacular wave watching and maybe the odd storm wrecked bird.
