Pre-work birding

Awoke early enough so nipped down to the golf course on the way to work (managed 39 under par). Plenty of alba wagtails and a Yellow Wagtail amongst them. A warbler sp flew straight at me, over my head and disappeared in a hedge. Spotted Flycatcher showed well, plus a maybe Lesser Whitethroat but it disappeared. Down by the sea there was a flurry of Kittiwakes off Denmark, an Eider just offshore, two Common Scoter went east, a steady trickle of Gannets both ways, a trickle of Sandwich Terns going east and a Great Northern Diver went west.
