At the mill bushes 2 Blackcap, 2 Whitethroat, 2 Lesser Whitethroat, and 2 Grey Partridge, with several Swift heading out to sea.

Two hour seawatch

Spent two hours off Climping Beach this morning with little reward the highlight being 2 adult Med Gull close inshore moving west. 7E 3W Gannet, 1E Common Scoter, 3W Sandwich Tern, 2E Little Egret, 25E Sand Martin and 10W Oystercatcher, was all i could manage it what appeared good conditions.
