Hope Gap, Seaford Head 5/4/10

A quick walk around the patch this morning in a breezy southwesterly wind, but when out of the wind it was rather pleasant. However, on the migrant front, it was as usual quiet.
Walking down to Hope Gap the distinctive song of the Whitethroat was heard, and it was very quickly spotted in a hawthorn bush. It was a male and my first of the year. Not a bad start, but it soon went downhill with the only highlights in Hope Gap were 2 Shelduck flying over and circling a couple of times.
Around the coastguard cottages were 2 Firecrest and a Chiffchaff was heard calling.
