Splash Point & Seaford Head 17/4/14

A much better seawatch this morning, but only up until 8.30am when passage slowed down and the temperature seemed to drop. Yet another good passage of Little Gulls and another pair of Garganey being the highlights, as was our first Little Tern.

Little Gull - 129
Brent Geese - 563 (incl. 1 leucistic bird)
