Seaford Head 14/8/15

A great morning with plenty of migrants about, and also some bits of quality mixed in, with the highlight being a Wryneck found at the top of Hope Gap around 6.20am, but was not seen subsequently. By far the best morning of the autumn so far. Fingers crossed the next few days produces the same amount of birds.

Totals for the morning are:

Wryneck - 1 certainly my earliest autumn record
Tree Pipit - 1 first of the autumn
Redstart - 1
Pied Flycatcher - 2
Whinchat - 3
Spotted Flycatcher - 2 first of the autumn
Whitethroat - 54
Lesser Whitethroat - 10
Willow Warbler - 60
Chiffchaff - 1
Grasshopper Warbler - 1
Blackcap - 2
Garden Warbler - 4
Reed Warbler - 7
Sedge Warbler - 2
Nightingale - 2
Green Sandpiper - 12 (incl. a flock of 10 flying west)
Swift - 1

 Wryneck in Hope Gap - hopefully the first of a few. Initially found at the top of Hope Gap when flushed off the path, fortunately it came back out for a quick snap, though the fog didn't help.
