Seaford Head & Tide Mills 28/08/2021

My first visit to Seaford Head this autumn was relatively OK, though nothing extravagant was encountered on a lengthy circuit. Afterwards I went down the Cuckmere and saw two of the four Little Stints along the river.

Personal totals for Seaford Head:

Whinchat - 5
Yellow Wagtail - ca. 100
Whitethroat - 30
Willow Warbler - 15
Reed Warbler - 4
Lesser Whitethroat - 7
Pied Flycatcher - 1
Garden Warbler - 1
Spotted Flycatcher - 1
Wheatear - 5
Chiffchaff - 4
Tree Pipit - 2

Late this afternoon I visited Tide Mills in the hope of finding a Wryneck, and for once, the hope came to light with an elusive individual found in the bushes along Mill Creek. A Whinchat was also present along with a number of other common migrants.
