A brilliant day with my birdwatching group yesterday at these two locations, with nearly 40 species recorded.
Stars of the day were 3 Peregrine Falcon, a flock of 42 Curlew, 3 Rock Pipit, 3 Oystercatcher, a Wheatear and for me a new tick - Stonechat. So many Stonechats in fact that I cannot believe that I haven't seen one before! As this was high on my wish list, I was very happy.
Still plenty of Swallows and Martins about and Meadowpipits in abundance.
An exceptionally high tide, which had just started to race out, meant that the mudbanks were covered and so we were a bit disappointed not to see more waders. It was a very sunny day, wind from the north west which was very strong on the top of Beachy Head but not felt lower down.
We had hoped to see Ring Ouzel but there were none about. Nevertheless, a brilliant day's birding.
