Camber Pits was interesting with parties of Starlings, dark – mantled Common Gulls, Lapwings and a good number of Curlew – at least forty accompanied by a Black-tailed godwit and four Ruffs along with a small Reeve (female Ruff). One of the Ruffs was rather gaudily bangled with red tassles on the leg.
At Pett Pools four or five of the Herring Gulls resting on the banks appeared to be Northern Herring Gulls. One bird in particular, a full adult, was a large individual with narrow black chevrons on the closed wingtip surrounded by white and a narrow black bar on the outer ‘hand.’ The bird was very pale eyed and the legs quite deep pink. It seemed a good fit for one of the Baltic Herring gulls of Latvia which often have reduced black in the wing tip.
