Cuckmere Haven 1st-5th June

Four out of five days I've been down the Cuckmere with the undoubted highlight being the Osprey on Monday. Other than this though this week has been shockingly bad.

The bad weather on Tuesday only produced a Whimbrel flying south and 4 Swift over the scrape. Wednesday held minor excitement when the two Ringed Plovers were joined by a third individual, and today (Friday) was awful with none of the above or anything else seen.

On Wednesday I visited Castle Hill NNR and saw a few Early Spider Orchids and lots of Fragrant Orchids, plus a few Common Spotted Orchids, whilst there were around 50+ Adonis Blues on the wing.
