A bright & sunny morning and a light NW met me as I climbed the cliff path. With nothing of note until I reached the Lighthouse and picked up a Caspian Tern out to sea.
It was moving North East and circling lazily about. Presumably the recent Pegwell Bay bird out on an excursion, Very exciting to come across it though, a real “Fucking ‘el!” moment.
Lighthouse down held a Spotted Flycatcher and a common Nightingale, which sang on and off from cover but also came to a ‘between the teeth’ whistle and showed it self briefly.
The rest of the afternoon was taken up by two twitches; the first was to see Tony M’s 3rd Striped Hawkmoth of the year, the second was to see the Eleanora’s falcon which was incredible, along side a female Red–footed Falcon and a few Hobbies. Really Glad I went. Great to catch up with some really nice folk.
