The Brent Geese were extremely impressive with the largest flock reaching 145 and several others above 70. The Black-necked Grebe was distant but enough detail was observed to confirm the id.

Later on in the afternoon after seeing several reports of Wheatears on the pager, i decided to give Seaford Head another go. Along the cliff edge west of Hope Gap, i finally glimpsed the white-rumped beauty, a Wheatear. It was a male and showed ok but was very mobile. Whilst watching this bird, another two Wheatears appeared. It's finally spring!! Also by the coastguard cottages a Firecrest was fly-catching and a Peregrine was also seen.
