Seaford Head & Cuckmere Haven 30/3/16

Seawatching was hopeless this morning in the half hour I spent there.
Seaford Head proved to be slightly better with the first arrival of grounded migrants, though numbers were very low. The highlight here was a Hobby that flew north, my earliest record. 
The Cuckmere wasn't too bad either with a few Hirundines moving north and a Knot on the meanders. 

Splash Point - 06.25-06.55:
Common Scoter - 12

Seaford Head:
Hobby - 1
Wheatear - 2 males
Chiffchaff - 4
Goldcrest - 4
Firecrest - 4
Redwing - 1

Cuckmere Haven:

Firecrest - 2
Water Rail - 2
House Martin - 1
Swallow - 3
Wheatear - 1

 at long last my first Wheatear of the spring

  1. I’m really amazed with your posting skills as well as with the layout on your blog site. Is this a paid style or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the pleasant quality writing, it is rare to see a great site such as this one these days.I recently came to know about http://uklocalmovers.co.uk/, their Man and Van Balham are very effective.
