Seaford Head 14/8/16

With a slight change in wind direction I was keen to get on the headland this morning. There was more variety today with the first noteworthy species being a small group of three Snipe flying west and a high-flying Tree Pipit, giving me some hope of diurnal passage but it never picked up, though the first Yellow Wagtails were good to see. Another small drop of Willow Warblers was apparent. A very enjoyable morning however and with the wind coming from the continent next week, there might finally be something good to search for.

Totals are:

Snipe - 3 W
Tree Pipit - 4 E
Wheatear - 1
Spotted Flycatcher - 1
Nightingale - 1
