Seaford Head 14/5/14

A day I would normally associate with a Long-tailed Skua was soon brought to a halt due to a light northerly and clear skies. However this did result in a scatter of grounded migrants on the Head. Spotted Flycatchers were again the most notable species present, but four singing Reed Warblers were a surprise. The whole area was covered, including the golf course. A steady passage of Hirundines and fewer Swifts were moving north as the morning warmed up.

Totals are:
Spotted Flycatcher - 14
Reed Warbler - 4
Whinchat - 4
Garden Warbler - 2
Willow Warbler - 1
