Another day in Kent

As for ticks today delivered just the one in the form of a loan Swallow in off the sea at Dunge.
As for the sea watch well lot's of Brents and Scoters flew up whist Fulmars and Gannets were present in smaller numbers but nothing else of note.

Firecrest at Dungeness Lighthouse
The lighthouse garden held at least twenty Firecrest and a single Chiffchaff and Black Redstart were also present here.  The bushes between the lighthouse and the Obs held plenty more with yesterday seeing over a hundred noted.

Marsh Harrier being mobbed by a Lapwing
At Elmley there was no sign of the Jack Snipe but seven Common Snipe showed well. The wind and rain made it difficult and everything was hunkered down to avoid the worst of the weather. Tomorrow is set to be worse as storm Katie hits our shores over night.
