Local Stuff 21/9/17

I teamed up with Marc Read for most of the day and we concentrated on most of the local sites, but the strong southerly wind made birding hard work, and despite 7.5 hours in the field there was little to show for our efforts.
Sites visited were Seaford Head, Cuckmere Haven, Crowlink, Arlington Reservoir, Tide Mills and a half hour seawatch off from Peacehaven.

Highlights for the day are:

White Wagtail - 4 (Foxhole)
Redstart - 2
Little Stint - 3
Marsh Harrier
Merlin (Arlington)
Arctic Skua - 1
Common Scoter - 4
