The rain swept through the garden in wave after wave, while the wind reached gusts of 50 mph. By the early evening it had reduced to lighter rain so I had a look at the bay. Not really expecting to see much passage out to sea I wasn't disappointed when there was absolutely zero.
I took a wander along pond lane, where there is a good view over much of the area and scanned the sky for a late raptor moving now the weather had relented and of course found none. I'm not alone in having a poor day in Kent. There wasn't a single item on BirdGuides relating to Kent when I looked at 10pm. The weather is improving with a reasonable forecast tomorrow morning, a new day with high hopes!
