Splash and S'ford Head 15/4/13

A late start due to the golf going onto the early hours. A seawatch between 6.55-8.25 and another between 9.25-10.55 produced nothing special, neither did a walk up on the Head. And no, I didn't go for the Baikal Teal!!

Totals are:

Great Skua - 10
Arctic Skua - 3
Arctic Tern - 3
Commic Tern - 20
Sandwich Tern - 70
Common Scoter - 321
Velvet Scoter - 5
Eider - 6
Red-throated Diver - 32
Gadwall - 3
Shoveler - 1
Little Gull - 12
Mediterranean Gull - 21
Brent Geese - 191
Grebe sp. - 2 (possibly Red-necked)
Whimbrel - 4

S'ford Head
Redstart - 1
Willow Warbler - 4
Whitethroat - 2
Blackcap - 1

Afterwards me and Dad went to Beachy to look for Adders. No luck with these but it was slightly gutting for a message 5.5 hours after the initial sighting of a Corncrake at Shooters Bottom, where we were very nearly around the time of the sighting. Yet another mega Sussex bird not released for others to see. A great find though!!!
