Seaford Head, Climping & Rye 18/10/14

What a day. A lot of miles on the clock but well worth it.

The day started off well when I found a Yellow-browed Warbler on Seaford Head golf course. It however soon disappeared allowing zero photos to be taken of it, which was a shame as it was a very bright individual.

News then broke of a Stone Curlew at Climping, and being a Sussex lifer I had no choice but to go. After a while, it looked as if a dip was on the cards, but out of nowhere the Stone Curlew flew up and was watched flying away and into another field. Awesome!!!

Now fully motivated and in twitching mode, I took the decision to drive all the way to Rye, where thankfully the adult White-winged Black Tern showed superbly in the evening light. Also present were 3 Little Stints and a Ruff. 

Anyway, totals for Seaford Head:
Yellow-browed Warbler - 1
Ring Ouzel - 8
Chiffchaff - 20
Goldcrest - 10
Wheatear - 1
