1st October 2017
A 2 hour seawatch in the gloom from 1515 on Kingsdown Rifle Butts did not produce the hoped-for seabirds, with 100+ Gannets offshore, 4 Med Gulls, 1 Great Skua, 6 Sandwich Terns and 1 Black Tern all moving down channel. However, the mood brightened when an Alpine Swift was watched powering towards the shore before heading north at 1542. It was not picked up either in the village or further up the coast in Deal.
