Friday 09.11 Dungeness

Phil Sharp and Alan Roman planned a visit to Dungeness and invited me along. Meeting at the Power Station there was a quick sea watch with one Guillimot and plenty of close up Gannets in the very short time we were there little else was noted. We then made an attempt for the Glaucous and Yellow legged , I saw the Glaucous in Flight but Phil missed it.
There was nothing reported on the visitor center notice board so a quick trip to Midgely for the 2 whoopers also seen was a large flock if Fieldfare and then to Scotney for the Barnacle geese. Returned to Arc for lunch and added nothing of interest. So back to the reserve still no sign of LongTailed Duck although it was reported from Dennis hide. But the notice board now reported a common Crane on Scotney something else we missed.
My first long Bird watch since my back was damaged so retreated home at 2.30 and suffered the rest of the evening.
57 species
