This morning I went to Dungeness with Bob Bland. Rather unusually it was cloudy on the coast,but clear inland,there was a moderate westerly blowing.
Birds of note that we saw Great White Egret (1) Glaucous Gull (1) (this bird has now been present at Dungeness for almost a full year) Arctic Skua (2) Eider Duck (3) Sandwich Tern (2),Grey Plover (3) Dunlin (10) Greenshank (1) Greylag (350+) Kingfisher (1) Great Crested Grebe (30+) (on the sea) Wigeon (100+) Knot (60) and Marsh Harrier (1).
The morning was most notable for the numbers of Linnets that were passing through the area,probably many hundreds,all were mainly heading towards the sea.

During the evening I saw a Barn Owl along the road towards Kings Hill,West Malling.
