Seaford Head 19/9/19

A fairly quiet morning for grounded migrants, although there was some quality overhead with an adult Dotterel that initially flew east over Hope Bottom, then a few minutes later flying west and banking down to land in the sheep field. Mike O'Shea was along the cliff edge and saw it briefly settled before it again departed off east. My first Firecrest of the autumn was the only noteworthy grounded migrant. Mike also had a Pied Flycatcher. This weekend will hopefully shape things up somewhat.
