Seaford Head & Cuckmere Haven 24/3/15

The combination of rain and a light northerly wind dropped a good number of Chiffchaffs on the headland, with some even seen flying in off the sea. Other than this just a handful of other species seen. Most of the headland was covered including the golf course.

A walk down the Cuckmere this afternoon was painful. Very little evidence of any new arrivals, with just the Greenshank lingering, this time on the scrape. Totals are: 

Seaford Head
Chiffchaff - 41
Siskin - 1 N
Blackcap - 1 male (first of the spring)
Wheatear - 1
Black Redstart - 1 fem
Meadow Pipit - 50 N
Fieldfare - 1
White-fronted Goose - 1 still on west side of Cuckmere. 

Cuckmere Haven
Scandinavian Rock Pipit - 3
Greenshank - 1

 the bottom of Hope Gap
Harry's Bush looking very bleak 
Greenshank on the scrape - been present for around six months now
