Long drive today to see the Beluga down in Kent. Much further than I’d normally twitch but it seemed a fairly safe bet and with 3 in the car, costs were acceptable.
The beluga spent all the time I was there closer to the other bank but was pretty active allowing numerous scoped views as it came up for air.
A couple of nice year ticks on the way back north too.
604. (230.) Pallid harrier - very showy, even perching up but with an injured right leg.
605. (231.) Pectoral sandpiper
