Splash Point, Seaford Head & Cuckmere 22/3/16

A day of slim pickings where yet again migrants were very thin on the ground, though there was a slight improvement. Seawatching was dire but the main highlight was a Red Kite in off early on. Most of the day was spent around the patch but nothing to really show for the effort.

Sunset at Splash reminding me of the numerous stunning sunsets in California, just wish the birding today was of the same quality
