A miserable wet dark morning found myself wondering if I should return home for an hour or so. A Ring Ouzel amongst several Blackbirds around the old camp site made me glad I didn't. At least 4 Firecrest in the area with 1 at Kents and 3 in longwood.

Received a report of a Short-eared Owl in the dunes at 10.25. Disturbed by walkers then dropped back into the dunes, also 6 Swallow.
