Splash Point & Lower Cuckmere 9/3/16

I started off at Splash Point where a reasonable passage of Fulmars was going on. Was really hoping for a 'Blue' form but it wasn't to be, so was slightly disappointed to see Dunge had a fair few. Not much else so I headed down the Lower Cuckmere where a large Gull flock held a first-winter Caspian Gull

In the sheep field between Chyncton Farm and the Cuckmere produced a different Scandinavian Rock Pipit feeding with the newly arrived Meadow Pipits.

Totals for Splash Point  between 8.10-9.10am are:

Great Skua - 1 at 9.08
Little Gull - 1 adult
Mediterranean Gull - 1 adult
