Most of the interest elsewhere around the area was at Lade Pits where a Hume's Warbler was found along with a Red-necked Grebe, two Goosanders, two Great White Egrets and two Caspian Gulls. The gull roost on Burrowes this afternoon produced three Caspian Gulls where a party of eight Goosanders were also seen.

A very ropey shot of this bird. Fortunately it was heard calling on several occasions which helped to confirm its identity.
Tthis is only the fourth Dungeness area record.
