Plenty of birds were offshore today but not a great deal was actually moving through. Five Velvet Scoters were of note whilst gulls included the three Iceland Gulls, a Little Gull and four Mediterranean Gulls.

Two Porpoises were seen.

The latest batch of ringing recoveries just received had a couple of interesting ones among them.

The first was a "Continental" Coal Tit which was ringed by Wes Attridge at Capel, Surrey on 14th October 2015 and controlled at Dungeness on 22nd March 2016 and was presumably on its way back to the continent.
The second was a male Stonechat which was ringed on the Great Orme, Conwy on 19th August 2016 and controlled at Dungeness on 8th October 2016.
