Seaford Head & Cuckmere Haven 29/10/13

A drop in the wind today was enough to force me back out on the patch. It wasn't too bad either with the highlight probably being a good movement of Stock Doves. Most of the interest however was moving overhead where good numbers of Finches were migrating, though not counted.

Totals are:
Firecrest - 6
Goldcrest - 2
Crossbill - 32 (1 flock)
Siskin - 15
Stock Dove - 255
Blackcap - 3
Chiffchaff - 7
House Martin - 10

The Cuckmere this afternoon produced the regular Jack Snipe and 5 Firecrests around Foxhole Cottages.
