Whitbread Hollow, Beachy Head 30/5/08

A certain mega was found alongside Steve Dawson today whilst searching for a Rose-coloured Starling.

RIVER WARBLER - 1 male singing found along the ride above the Hollow. (1st for Sussex)
Brambling - 1

Due to the very elusive nature of all Locustella Warblers, no photos were taken at all of the River Warbler, but recordings were taken of its 'sowing machine' type song. Brilliant!!!

The Bee-eater flew over whilst surrounding the bushes of the Warbler.

Lewes County Hall 28/5/08


Never saw this bird in flight as it kept all it's time clinging to the wall of the county hall.

Newhaven Tide Mills 10/5/08


A very distinct individual seen only briefly but relevant features seen well. It showed within 5 minutes of my arrival before completely disappearing for much of that day, even though we saw where, or at least where we thought it went.
