Up date

Trip to Dungeness on Friday ensured that I managed to catch a Penduline Tit and Black Redstart but missed most of the migrants that I saw appear on my pager or when I got home!I really wanted a Black throated Diver or a Pom Skua but no new sea birds for me!
I had a little run down to Devon on Saturday afternoon to overnight to collect a sighting of some nice Cirl Buntings and the female Surf Scoter off Dawlish.
My visit to Portland was unusually rewarded with Hoopoe and Wheatear plus more Black Redstarts!
I was tempted to go for the Little Gull at Chichester but directions were not good - if I had realised where it actually was I would have found it!
Still some good birding in better weather!

I was going to email you this w/e if I hadn't heard from you!
Not so concerned about Little Gulls as usually we get them later on on Staines Reservoirs!
