Wood Warbler + more 21/4/17

A mammoth 15 hours of birding today all over Sussex. The highlight by far was finding a splendid male Wood Warbler at Foxhole Farm in the Cuckmere. The bird sang continuously an called every now and then. Other than this a late Fieldfare on Seaford Head was a surprise. Unfortunately I didn't see the Hoopoe at Church Norton, but a nice Whinchat here and a Spoonbill at Medmerry nearly compensated this. Still a really good day out after a tough week at work.
