Getting back towards Stodmarsh on the Lampern Wall the harriers started coming in to roost,several Marsh Harriers and a single female Hen Harrier were seen.
Also flying in to roost were hundreds of winter thrushes;
Closer to home the Prince of Wales Pier had a dozen Turnstones last week and a common seal,Samphire Hoe played host to a DESERT WARBLER last sunday for an all too brief visit,so brief that only one lucky person saw it,it was only the 11th record ever for Britain and despite an extensive
search it could not be refound.
I stayed at the Hoe until sunset hoping that the Desert Warbler would resurface but to no avail.
