Behind Scotney Gravel Pits

 I hoped for a good count of Red-throated Divers from the Clifftop yesterday, having seen 163 the previous morning, including a fine flock of 72 flying west, also a Great Skua.

However, nothing doing, so I went for a walk round the back of Scotney to look for Corn Buntings and Tree Sparrows-of which there were none. This is very unusual and suggests that the extensive stubbles at East Guldeford have drawn in all the birds in the area. A Water Pipit flew low over me behind the farmhouse, where there were  also a Great Egret and a Green Sandpiper. I then visited Lade GPs [south lake], but couldn't see either the regular Slav Grebe or Long-tailed Duck, but 8 Goosanders and a Dartford Warbler made up for that.
