Seaford Head 8/8/20

I arrived on the Head at 5.30am today, but with the cloud it was still fairly dark. So, I drove down to the Cuckmere and walked that before it got bombarded with tourists and approached the headland from he river mouth. 

A nice variety of species were seen today, including my first Grasshopper Warbler, Wheatears and Garden Warblers of the autumn. Another slight scattering of Willow Warblers was lovely to see and there was also a stark increase in Sylvia activity. By 9am it was already too hot!

In the Cuckmere before hitting the Head, three Cattle Egrets and three Green Sandpipers were present.
