Another wonderful morning but after lunch managed to get Val to drive me out to the Kent end of Scotney. As is our luck before even getting to Dymchurch it started raining gentle at first but got harder later.
Remembered my scope for a change and managed Avocet and Little Ringed Plover to add to my list but unable to see Egyptian Goose.
Returning by a very wet Dengemarsh road the sight of close flying Hobbies (3) and a sky awash with swifts was worth getting wet for. Did not find any Marsh Harriers ( do they not like rain )
Species total 40.
