Seaford Head & Cuckmere Haven 30/7/15

At long last a morning free from work. Despite a constant NW breeze there were a few migrants to see, best being a very early Redstart which is probably my earliest ever returner for this species.

Totals are:

Redstart - 1 juv male
Nightingale - 3
Grasshopper Warbler - 1
Willow Warbler - 9
Whitethroat - 24
Lesser Whitethroat - 4
Blackcap - 6 (local birds)
Reed Warbler - 5
Sand Martin - 50+ moving NW
Swift - 180+ moving NW

This evening down the Cuckmere produced the following:

Sanderling - 1 s/p along the river - a great local record and I think is my first Sanderling in the Cuckmere itself. 
Dunlin - 11
Greenshank - 1
Common Sandpiper - 2
Yellow Wagtail - 1 still present
