Seaford Head 9/4/13

After a great morning of seawatching (see post below), and after the rain had cleared, I ventured onto the Head where it was pleasently warm and a surprising number of grounded migrants were present in the afternoon. A variety of areas were covered with totals consisting of:

Firecrest - 9 ( 3 in Hope Gap; 4 by Harry's Bush; 2 near Coastguard cottages)
Willow Warbler - 1
Blackcap - 5
Chiffchaff - 5
Goldcrest - 7
Wheatear - 4
Black Redstart - 1 fem (dung heap)

Out at sea there were still Common Scoter going by as were some Brent Geese. On the scrape were 2 Avocets still.

Not breaking any records the totals above, but it is some relief to finally get some migrants in.
