Seaford Head & Peacehaven Cliffs 16/5/16

Another pleasant morning on the Head but very little in the way of new migrants. Two new Spotted Flycatchers were in Hope Gap and the Firecrest was still around the Harry's Bush area.

Afterwards I walked the cliffs between Peacehaven and Newhaven where a singing Reed Warbler was present and a very high count of at least 80 Corn Buntings.

Corn Bunting between Peacehaven and Newhaven. This bird was on its own singing away whilst flocks containing ca. 65 and 14 were also seen.

  1. Hey Matt. Hope you're well. I just stumbled across your blog while trying to ID some birds I saw today at Hope Gap. (Turns out they were linnets, which says something about my lack of knowledge...) I didn't realise you were quite so clued up on birdlife and wondered whether I could tag along with you one day in the hope that some of that knowledge might rub off...? Thanks Matt, Tom.
