Most of the interest was offshore where a Sooty Shearwater flew east and 796 Gannets, 19 Sandwich Terns and 358 Kittiwakes flew west in 2.75 hrs of watching in the morning. The gull watchers were also well rewarded with a Slovakian-ringed third-winter Caspian Gull joining the more regular first-winter bird in the roost at the Point.
The best on offer on the land were a Firecrest and a Ring Ouzel in the trapping area and a Grey Wagtail and three Bramblings overhead. 

Meanwhile I spent the day at the excellent KOS Conference held in Canterbury and presented a short talk on "Dungeness - Past, present and future - a brief review".
