Seaford Head and Old Lodge 7/4/11

A great morning in great conditions. By far the highlight were 4 male Redstarts including one along the cliff edge. Also a Grasshopper Warbler was heard in Hope Gap but could not be seen. Another noteworthy sighting were of 6 Corn Bunting flying west along the cliff edge. Commoner migrants included 32 Willow Warblers, 13 Wheatears, 6 Whitethroats, 7 Blackcaps, 2 Chiffchaffs, 3 Swallows and singles of Siskin, House Martin and a Common Buzzard.

Sunrise, Wheatear and 2 different Redstarts.

A trip to Old Lodge after yielded my first Tree Pipit of the year, plus 4 more Redstarts, many Lesser Redpolls, a Woodlark and a Cuckoo was heard.
