Seaford Head 21/8/13

With the wind reverting back round to a light SW, it was to no surprise that no new 'continental' migrants were seen today, and with the clear night, all of yesterdays birds had departed, which left little in the way of any excitement. The highlight was a Hen Harrier over the cliff edge and then in the sheep field, but of a more interesting note were how few Willow Warblers there were. Totals are:

Hen Harrier - 1 (having been told of this sighting we quickly went back to the cliff edge and had good views before it flew off strongly west)
Tree Pipit - 1
Redstart - 1
Yellow Wagtail - 11
Wheatear - 5
Whinchat - 1
Nightingale - 2
Whitethroat - 42
Lesser Whitethroat - 5
Blackcap - 18
Garden Warbler - 6
Willow Warbler - 4
Chiffchaff - 1
Reed Warbler - 3
Swallow - 20
Swift - 3
Sand Martin - 5
