Seaford Head 7/8/15

As predicted, the first calm morning of the week produced a good number of birds as well as some decent stuff moving overhead. Although a juvenile Crossbill going over was noteworthy, the number of Reed Warblers was particularly good. It felt like every other bird was this species. Bob also saw a Pied Flycatcher. As the morning warmed up a small number of Hirundines were seen moving eastwards. A very nice morning to be out and for the first time this autumn it felt as if stuff was finally moving.

Totals are:

Crossbill - 1 juv for 10 minutes in Hope Gap
Golden Plover - 1 adult flew west
Whitethroat - 35
Lesser Whitethroat - 9
Nightingale - 2
Reed Warbler - 22
Sedge Warbler - 2
Willow Warbler - 40
Garden Warbler - 2
Blackcap - 4
House Martin - 2 east
Swallow - ca. 75
Sand Martin - ca. 50
