Early this morning a walk around the downs north of Falmer and round to Ashcombe Bottom failed to find the Quail, but it was nice to see Corn Buntings and Yellowhammers.
Totals for the Cuckmere are:
Yellow Wagtail - 1
Common Gull - 1
Dunlin - 7
Whimbrel - 4
Corn Bunting nr Ashcombe Bottom
perhaps a reason why there were so few birds in the Cuckmere this evening
