Seaford Head - 17/5/15

Another BBS this morning was as usual uneventful until halfway down Hope Gap when the unmistakable song of a Golden Oriole sounded. It sang a further 4-5 times before going completely silent, or flying off without me seeing it. Obviously a true highlight for me, its still painful that I didn't see it and will no doubt have to wait years to find another one. Very little else going on with the following totals.

Golden Oriole - 1 male singing around 7.10am
Spotted Flycatcher - 1 in Harry's Bush
Reed Bunting - 1 male in full song in Hope Gap
Swallow - a few groups moving west

Reed Bunting in Hope Gap - strange to hear one in full song here
