Seaford Head 24/7/18

A delayed start to the autumn campaign this year, but still it was good to get back to the usual circuit on Seaford Head, and surprisingly there were a few migrants about, the most notable species being Reed Warbler with a double-figured count today. An early Garden Warbler and two flyover Yellow Wagtails were also noteworthy.

In the Cuckmere after, a good count of 32 Little Egrets, whilst only singles of Whimbrel and Common Sandpiper were noted. Late last week an adult Common Gull and a juv Mediterranean Gull were on the scrape alongside many Black-headed Gulls.

Totals for Seaford Head:

Reed Warbler - 11
Whitethroat - 20
Grasshopper Warbler - 1
Lesser Whitethroat - 6
