Splash Point

Pomarine Skua - 14

Cuckmere Haven

After a successful sea watch, a call from Dick Gilmore soon saw us down the Cuckmere as a Black-winged Stilt was present. After an hour search, we eventually saw the Stilt and had great scope views.

Worthing P&P Golf Course 6/4/05

GREAT SPOTTED CUCKOO - 1

Twitched this bird with Chris Lowmas and Dick Gilmore after an unsuccessful visit at Splash Point only seeing 1 Great Skua.

On arrival, no sign of the bird though it had been seen early on. A walk around I glimpsed what I thought was the bird in question. A walk up the hill confirmed my suspicions and after seeing it in flight, the Cuckoo settled on a green and showed very well.

CATTLE EGRET - 1

A lot of time was spent searching for this bird, and finally we connected. However on arriving home, we were unaware that a flock of 8 had been found no more than 15 minutes away. We enjoyed all of these as well.
