Arriving at dawn we pulled up along the causeway and picked up the Black-throated diver on new diggings with no fewer than 4 Great White Egrets on view. Arc pits held 7 red head Smew and several Goldeneye.
Quite an amazing start, we then headed down to the point and picked up at least 8 Little Gulls inc 2 1w's.

Having had a fill of this stonking beast we headed of to folkestone in search of an over wintering Palla's warbler but to no avail, but we did add both Treecreeper and Coal tit for the year.
A great morning's birding and managed to get Mo home for his rugby! Bet he wished we stayed out though.....
