Seaford Head & Cuckmere Haven 22/10/16

A cold start that soon warmed up but unfortunately there was little about in the whole area. The only noteworthy sighting on the Head was a single flock of 30 Fieldfare and in the Cuckmere a Marsh Harrier flew east and a very showy Brent Goose was on the meanders. Not long now until my travels head to the southern hemisphere, and the way things are at the moment in Sussex, I can't wait!!
