Passage stutters to a halt

 There was hardly any breeze early on, what there was came from north, with possibly a bit of east in it. Still warm and sunny.

There weare some flurries of movement to mid morning (most done by 08:15), but absolutely nothing moving through in the afternoon.

Arctlc Tern just 11 in through the far Kent channel
Sandwich Tern c60
Arctic Skua 1
Common Scoter 2 came from far channel and settled in near one, then disappeared
Kittiwake 1 adult looked lost over skeer then headed out
Whimbrel 3 in
Bar-Tailed Godwit 3 in

These Herring gull certainly seem to have a strict hierarchy (MD)

No reports as yet from inland sites.
