Seaford Head 21/3/19

After the school run I was keen to hit the patch after the minor influx of Wheatears that had arrived yesterday, and hopefully into today. It felt very spring like, and with the nice total of Wheatears and a few other scattered summer migrants it felt very promising for late March. Sadly still nothing moving out at sea......the next moderate SE wind could be epic!

Whilst down Splash Point, I received a message of the Hooded Crow being present in the sheep field, and thankfully saw it flying over me heading west whilst I was keeping a close eye on a group of seven Wheatears at Buckle Church.

This afternoon after the school run Leo and I walked the cliffs at Newhaven Heights, but only finding a single male Wheatear of note.

Totals for Seaford Head are:

Wheatear - 12 (2 Hawks Brow, 7 Buckle Church, 2 Hope Gap, 1 golf course)
Hooded Crow - 1 over Buckle Church7
Black Redstart - 1 fem below Harry's Bush
Goldcrest - 4
Chiffchaff - 3
Stonechat - 1 rubicola male along cliff edge
