I was going to Dungeness today with my son David to do some photograpy, but the light was going to be pants, so we took a trip to Abberton res instead. Weather wasn't great but we managed to see quite a variety of birds. Short-Eared Owl at 11am, Fieldfares, Pair of Bullfinches, with the male coming out into the open, daren't move! 3 Goosanders, 20 Spotted Redshanks, some Goldeneye, millions of other Wildfowl including 15 Bewick Swans, We just missed the Hen Harrier doing his rounds, apparently quite close, and a Peregrine. Eventually the rain came and that was it.
