Cuckmere Haven & Newhaven Harbour 13/7/18

A midday walk in the Cuckmere was typically quiet, although a second-summer Mediterranean Gull on the scrape, a Common Sandpiper along the river and two Sand Martins moving south were just about notable. It was great to also see a couple of Small Red-eyed Damselflies on the meanders.

In the evening at Newhaven Harbour, a first-summer Yellow-legged Gull was among the small Gull roost, but still no juveniles. Six Mediterranean Gulls including a lovely fresh juv were also present.
