There have just been a few November Moths and a Feathered Thorn of note since my last post. Another trip to Dunge yesterday. We met up as usual in the ARC car park where a Great White Egret flew over. With news that the Dusky Warbler was still present near the new Lighthouse we headed off there but failed to see anything in gloomy and windy conditions. We walked over to the Fishing Boats where a brief seawatch produced a stream of Gannets, 2 Sandwich Terns, a Common Scoter and a Guillemot. Two Yellow-legged Gulls were noted in the gull roost but no sign of any Caspian Gulls. After lunch we had a look around the Old Lighthouse and the Observatory Moat-not much seen there. So back to ARC pit where another Great White was present and a Kingfisher posed briefly. We checked the Gulls along the track to the visitor centre where there was another Yellow-legged, and a Black Redstart was around the visitor centre. On Burrows there were 2 more Great Whites, 3 Caspian Gulls (1 Adult 3rd winter, and 2 juvs) and 2 more Yellow-legs. So not a bad day in the end.
