Seaford Head & Newhaven Harbour 8/11/15

Very quiet on the Head as expected this morning with an hours totals of:

Goldcrest - 7
Reed Bunting - 1
Redpoll - 6
Goldfinch - a few hundred moved east

Gull numbers in the Lower Cuckmere appeared very low so I decided to head home. 

An afternoon visit to Newhaven Harbour produced a very smart first-winter Caspian Gull on the western breakwater though annoyingly it never came close resulting in some very ropey photos. I watched it for over an hour as it preened, slept and flew to the lower ledge.

(Having been very pleased to have found this Caspo, it was frustrating to find out it had been found a couple of hours earlier. Still, can't find them all!)
