A good search around the local area today yet again failed to deliver anything of any interest. First stop was Hope Gap, Seaford Head but after a two hour walk of the usual circuit, just 5 Chiffchaffs were recorded. When will i find that Hoopoe!!
After that disaster i went down Splash Point in a rather put off mood as the wind was a force 1 westerly, and as you would expect all i saw were 15 Brent Geese and 5 Common Scoter moving east. 2 Rock Pipits are still displaying.
After half hour at Splash, i moved on to Alfriston 'Levels' where i flushed 10 Common Snipe and 2 Teal.
Arlington Reservoir only produced 1 Common Buzzard, but no Hirundines and now the thought of finding anything decent this morning was very much fading away.
Oh well, maybe tomorrow, but with all these low pressures dominating the channel i'm not expecting many new arrivals, but you never know!
