There were several sightings of Red Kite across the wider Dungeness area today and eventually one was seen in our recording area just before dark. It was otherwise a very quiet day. Two Red-breasted Mergansers flew west this morning. Two Firecrests were seen at the Long Pits, two Siskins flew over and 60 Pied Wagtails came into roost at the Power Station.

A Grey Seal was feeding offshore.
