Seaford Head

A circular guided walk from South Hill Barn via Seaford Head golf course, Hope Gap, Cuckmere Haven and the Golden Galleon in dull and misty conditions produced good numbers of Kittiwakes back on the cliffs at Splash Point, Fulmars, a Shag on the sea, both Peregrine and Raven, some close views of Sky Larks and at least 5 Rock Pipits along the cliff edge. The Cuckmere Valley was fairly quiet apart from 8 Shelduck, 2 Gadwall, 6 Little Egrets, a Sparrowhawk and a Green Woodpecker. A Golden Plover flew over calling but was not seen. Nothing at the Ouse Estuary Project except a Little Egret and 2 Reed Buntings though Rodmell was more interesting with Little Egret, an adult male Merlin that flashed by in pursuit of a passerine, Grey Wagtail, ca. 20 Redwings, a flock of 40+ Corn Buntings and a few Reed Buntings and Yellowhammers.
