Foggy,clearing slowly.(9:am-1300).

This morning I picked up Bob Bland from his house in Headcorn and then made for Dungeness. We arrived in thick fog,which didn`t completely lift until around 10:30.

In all we saw (66) species of bird,the most notable being - Great White Egret (4),Black-necked Grebe (5),Little Gull (1),Ruff (3),Black-tailed Godwit (3),Golden Plover (100+),Stonechat (3),Yellow Wagtail (2),Eyptian Goose (5),Greenshank (1),Common Buzzard (1),Marsh Harrier (3),Pintail,Wigeon, Common Snipe (4).

We also saw one Clouded Yellow butterfly at Dengemarsh.

Either yesterday or the day before,Bob had a Long-tailed Blue Butterfly in his garden,an unusual inland record.
