A quick look around the headland in light Northerlies and mizzle held a few hundred Swift East, 2 Red Kites drifting around and a late Whinchat at south foreland lighthouse.
The remainder of the day was spent with friends on the beach at Dungeness, en route to which Amy and I found a Bee–eater perched on wires on the road to Lydd just before the golf course. We were running late so I didnt have much time, the bird flew around abit on both sides of the road, catching insects and seemed happy on the wires. It stuck around for Martin C to connect with it 10 mins later. I didn’t look for the Rosy Starling that was present at Dunge all day as I’d used up all my birding allowance on the Bee eater 😉
