Dungeness Autumn bird migration

Flying in front of the Dungeness Lighthouse, migrating Goldfinches have been common this autumn

Present for a couple of weeks this Arctic Squa with distinctive missing primary feathers moved away before the weekend ended.

Fresh in off the sea a male Sparrowhawk

...and followed by a Merlin who started to chase the Goldfinches and then swung back out to sea again

And the Little Auk is still present from the weekend on Monday - perhaps it will survive! (See earlier post for full story!)
