- started off down the Cuckmere where the Spoonbill was still present, but not a lot else. I visited a couple more sites but no luck with anything else.
- a seawatch around midday produced a Bonxie and a good stream of Brent Geese.
- most of today was spent on Old Lodge where the group of Parrot Crossbills remained and showed relatively well. Also the flock of Brambling around the Beech Trees gave good views. A Woodcock was flushed and a Woodlark performed well.
- the afternoon was spent around the coast. Still very few Gulls around, but on Newhaven east pier were 4 Purple Sandpipers, and an immature drake Eider was in the harbour. A stunning Black Redstart was also around the factory buildings.
Not a bad start to the yearlist, only 362 days to go!!
