Morning drive over the marsh from Dymchurch to Burmash looking for winter thrushes which are missing from my local list.The Hawthorn bushes are alive with berries and looked fantastic in the early morning sunshine. No Thrushes seen but a very close encounter with a Buzzard was entertaining. Afternoon visit to Dungeness dipped on Great White Egret and Long Tailed Duck once again. Stonechats and Marsh Harriers on the reserve.
A drive down to Fishing Boats found a yellow legged Gull lounging on the beach. returning via Scotney showed Barnacle goose and 2 blue phase Snow Geese on Romney Marsh 2 Meadow Pipits but again still no thrushes.
