Off to Kent again

Made a bit of a day of it this time on the journey there, as it was such nice weather.

Beachy Head

Ticked off Fulmar

And Jackdaw

Also Chinook which came pretty close

Smile for the camera

Next stop Dunge where the Penduline Tit had been reported again from the Hanson Hide on the ARC pit. When I arrived it was immediately apparent the chances were very slim to zero with only a handful of reeds there. Unbelievably over the past x amount of weeks this is the only place it has been reported from. It never ceases to amaze me how unadventurous people are, there were reeds everywhere but people just sat in the hides like zombies waiting for its next 6 hourly fleeting visit. Why dont people go and have a wander around? Needless to say I spent around 2 minutes there taking shots of some Smew and a bonus Ruddy Duck

Think Cormorant also year tick

With daylight running out made a dash to the point where I caught up with the Glauc this time which was hanging around the fishing boats

Seems to have lost its tail somewhere
