Seaford Head & Splash Point – 10/04/2022

After a lovely, but birdless, walk yesterday morning, today dawned warmer with light winds and it was with some relief that migrants had finally arrived. Albeit comprising only Wheatear and Willow Warbler, they were both in relative abundance, with 12 and 11 respectively. 

Afterwards, I drove over to Ovingdean to then spend most of the day watching the Brighton Marathon and a Wheatear flew across the road in Peacehaven, and then, above Ovingdean Beach, three more Wheatears were present. 

This afternoon with a south-easterly breeze blowing, I went down Splash Point between 3.30 and 5.30pm and recorded the following:

Arctic Skua - 2
Whimbrel - 28
Sandwich Tern - 19
Common Tern - 16
Red-throated Diver - 26
Common Scoter - 46
Bar-tailed Godwit - 4
Grey Plover - 2
