Tide Mills produced 8 Purple Sandpipers and 62 Dunlin roosting along Mill Creak. The Lower Cuckmere produced yet another Caspian Gull, this one being a smart second-winter, and is my 15th Caspian Gull this winter period.
Andrew a few days ago found an adult Bewick's Swan in the Ouse Valley and kindly told me it was still present today, and despite being distant was a welcome sight not far from home. Newhaven Harbour didn't produce anything of interest as the light faded, but of course the long-staying Great Northern Diver was still present.
Happy New Year!!
second-winter Caspian Gull in the Cuckmere - I had superb flight views, even
seeing the white mirror in P10, but I just couldn't capture it with the phone.
