Anyway, totals for this morning are:
Redstart - 2 males
Whitethroat - 1 - first of the year
Lesser Whitethroat - 2 - first of the year
Willow Warbler - 40 including a possible acredula individual (see below)
Blackcap - 23
Chiffchaff - 15
Wheatear - 23 - by far my highest ever spring count
White Wagtail - 1 male
Swallow - 10
Meadow Pipit - 45
Spoonbill - 1 on west side of Cuckmere
An afternoon walk down the Cuckmere produced yet another 10 Wheatears including some cracking males.
This evening at Rodmell the Little Ringed Plover showed nicely, and on Lewes Brooks the Glossy Ibis showed distantly.
I'm not really up on these pale type birds, but comparing the above two images with the lower image (P. trochilus), there does seem to be a significant difference, with the top bird showing much greyer upperparts and whiter underparts, whereas the lower bird shows the typical colouration of a trochilus. It also stood out like a sore thumb!!
