Dungeness wednesday 5th october.2011

                                          It was an extremly windy and overcast morning, 
                                          and as Russ and I trudged along the top of the
                                          mountainous pebble beach towards the dank
                                          wooden hide I thought we were going to be blown
                                          off the edge.  It felt like an hotel once we got inside
                                          and we were able to see some Sandwich and
                                          Common terns along the beach.  Out at sea through
                                          the telescope we could see many Gannets diving
                                          from a good height.    Back at the reserve we saw
                                          the Pectoral Sandpiper feeding on one of the small
                                          islands out from the hide at Denge.   Not much happening
                                          but we did see a Merlin and a Goosander.
