Worth Forest 29/10/16

An unproductive week with three visits on the patch, and today I visited Worth/Tilgate Forest on the way back from work seeing a nice range of Finches with totals of 10 Crossbills, 100+ Siskins and 5 Brambling.

The meagre highlight on the Head were two Mediterranean Gulls on the rock pools off Hope Gap whilst searching for Accentors and rare Wheatears, and in the Cuckmere an American Mink was a surprise, and has hopefully been destroyed. A couple of Lesser Redpolls flew west over Peacehaven on Wednesday but a Gull watch at Newhaven Harbour was pointless.
