Reculver and Oare (Kent)

Arrived at Reculver in bright conditions with north westerly winds. There were already a large number of observers gathered among the towers sheltering from the wind and searching for seabirds. From 09:00 till 14:30 we counted in excess of 200 Gannets moving west, 3 Swallows, 25 Sandwich Terns, c15 Wigeon west, 1 Common Scoter east, 30+ Great Skua west, 5 Arctic Skua, 2 Divers, 1 Auk and great views of a single Snow Bunting on the grass area just inland.
After, we visited Oare to view the very distant Sabines Gull that had been hanging around the Swale since this morning, where we also saw: Spoonbill (1), Great Skua (3), Arctic Skua (1), Gannet (25), Common Scoter (3), Avocet (60), juvenile Little Stint (1) and Swallow (6).
