Dungeness - 29.5.13

After letting the heavy rain subside we headed off towards Dungeness where we took a trip on the miniature railway to New Romney. After lunch we went down to the beach by the power station. Tom threw stones into the sea while Carey walked up the beach and I had a quick seawatch. Around 40 Common Tern were at the patch and 30+ Common Scoter flew east but then I picked up a dark bird on the sea. Immediate thoughts were dark morph Arctic Skua and after a few minutes it got up and started chasing the terns and sure enough my thoughts were correct. Another Med Gull was seen in the beach car park at Camber on the way home.
