Seaford Head 31/8/14

A great morning with plenty of variety, both in the bushes and overhead. From my arrival there were small waves of migrants moving north and as the morning went on there was a continuous flow of Hirundines moving westwards. The highlight of the morning was finding a Wryneck which proved to be very elusive. The same or a different Wryneck was seen 100m north of the original sighting.

Totals are:

Wryneck - 1 (possibly 2) in elders in the SE corner of the electric fence
Spotted Flycatcher - 2
Redstart - 3
Grey Wagtail - 3 - the first of the autumn
Yellow Wagtail - 141 - huge numbers on the sheep fields as well as moving west
Wheatear - 7
Whinchat - 5
Great Spotted Woodpecker - 2
Tree Pipit - 4
Whitethroat - 34
Lesser Whitethroat - 3
Blackcap - 104
Willow Warbler - 62
Chiffchaff - 27
Sedge Warbler - 2
Reed Warbler - 9
Swallow, House & Sand Martin - large numbers moving west
