Seaford Head 3/4/16

Got home from work at 2am but I was keen to get going on the Head after hearing reports of migrants hitting Portland etc. Although numbers were still low, it was great to see and hear my first Whitethroat. A Little Ringed Plover first picked up by its call that soon flew high north was my first record on the Head, but what stole the 'show' was a Weasel that played a game of hide and seek with me for five minutes.

Totals are:
Whitethroat - 1 male
Firecrest - 1
Willow Warbler - 1 
Chiffchaff - 8
Little Ringed Plover - 1 north at 09.20
Goldcrest - 2

Weasel - 1 

A couple of nice bits from some short seawatches over the weekend have included the following:

Slavonian Grebe - 2 in transitional plumage
Common Tern
Little Gulls
plus lots of Scoter, Sandwich Terns, Divers etc.

 Whitethroat just east of South Hill Barn
 Chiffchaff in Hope Gap

 a stunning Weasel between Hope Gap and Coastguard Cottages
Little Gulls over Splash Point
