Seaford Head & Upper Cuckmere 17/3/15

A murkier but milder morning (becoming brighter late morning) and early reports of migrants hitting Portland, I was fairly confident that today would produce a couple of new arrivals. The Head produced my first Wheatears of the year and a steady trickle of Meadow Pipits moving north. The highlight was a Redpoll that flew in off.

Totals are:
Wheatear - 2 males
Meadow Pipit - 135 N
Reed Bunting - 1 along cliff edge before departing NW
Redpoll - 1 N
Alba Wagtail - 2 N
Chiffchaff - 8
Stonechat - 3 

An afternoon visit to the floods just north of Charleston Reedbed produced the following:

Garganey - 2 (1 drk)
Ruff - 1
Great Grey Shrike - 1
Pintail - 4

Late news for yesterday - The Richard's Pipit showed nicely at the Ouse Estuary Project, Newhaven.
