Been out a few times despite the grim weather,Reculver,North Foreland and Pegwell with Barry Woolhouse was uneventful in the main,except for ze banter wiv Phil at Pigswill Bay.
The wind at a gloomy Dungeness was not conducive to standing around outside for long,but I did catch up with the Black Throated Divers and a female Goosander on New Diggings,a Great Egret on A.R.C. and a female Smew was just outside Hansons for a short time.
Back to Dover and the harbour where guillemot and razorbill numbers are rising and a grey seal has joined the commoners,the first sighting on wednesday afternoon.
Today a grey seal popped up so I took some more pics,on inspection this was a second animal with different markings.
Also of note today was a juvenile eider,whether it is the same bird that has come back is uncertain,but it is hanging out in the same place,so it may well be.
There now follows a series of guillemot pics,these are of a bird in summer plumage :-
To end with I can`t remember which day it was but the sun came out briefly and the Little Gull turned up again also briefly.
