Splash Point, Seaford Head & Cuckmere Haven 17/3/16

A quieter seawatch this morning probably wasn't helped by a stronger NE wind. A light passage of Divers was noted but very few other species recorded. 

Seaford Head was dead other then a few Meadow Pipits heading north, so a break at home to thaw out was had before an afternoon trek down the Cuckmere that once again lacked any migrants, although the scrape held a few bits. 

Splash Point 06.30-07.30:
Red-throated Diver - 15
Common Scoter - 11
Gannet - 2
Grey Wagtail - 1N
Brent Geese - 58

Cuckmere Haven:
Water Rail - 2
Mediterranean Gull - 1 adult
Scandinavian Rock Pipit - 2 (1 of which was supporting a very pinky throat)
Dunlin - 3
Ringed Plover - 3
Greenshank - 1
Brent Geese - 80E + 29 landed on west side
