Ongoing Excavation Works.

6th Dec

A thoroughly miserable day with strong winds and almost continuous rain all day. Seawatching this morning produced two Shovelers, six Velvet Scoters and eight Fulmars of note while a check of the Patch this afternoon showed three Caspian Gulls and an adult Mediterranean Gull. The weather prevented any sensible coverage of the land.

Elsewhere, the swan flock feeding next to the dung heap at Dengemarsh now holds two Whooper Swans and four Bewick's Swans.
