13th Jan

The bad weather crossing Britain overnight hardly made it to Dungeness with just a brief spell of snow which barely settled and occasional strong gusts of wind but nothing too serious. There was the occasional sleety flurry during the morning.

There were large numbers of gulls feeding along the shoreline and at the Patch but all that could be found among them was a single adult Mediterranean Gull. Seawatching during the morning produced an up channel movement of Red-throated Divers (88 in an hour) and one, possibly two, Great Skuas.

A Chiffchaff and three Goldcrests were seen at the Long Pits.
