A quieter day at Reculver

It was another early start, reaching the towers at 5:30am, but this time the conditions weren't great, overcast with a strong westerly breeze. There were a few terns feeding offshore as i walked down to Cold Harbour, but not much else:
4 Common Sandpipers, 8 Sanderling, 9 Dunlin, 36 Redshank, 5 Little Egrets, 4 Grey Herons, 1 Wheatear and about 35 Yellow Wagtails were the best bits, plus Common and Sandwich Terns.

On my return there was a migrant Whitethroat seeking shelter in bushes east of the towers, in lovely sunshine.

I saw a single Common Darter and a Common Blue Damselfly at Shuart, and on the way home a walk in Thornden Woods had Speckled Wood and Gatekeepers.
