After this I rested having been up for most of the night thanks to Katie, thankfully Katie also woke Paula so I don't have to explain that one!
In the afternoon I tried another Firecrest count, this time on Seaford Head. Several were found around Harry's Bush and Hope Gap with all birds feeding very low down and showing incredibly well, though too quick for the camera.
