Change of status

Another day of bright blue sky and a chill in the air, migrant birds calling overhead, mostly invisible.
Heading north-east along the coasts old and new: Goldfinch, Siskin, lesser Redpoll, Chaffinch, Meadow Pipit and a flock of 13 Crossbills while I was still at the back of the marsh.
Heading south-west: Woodpigeons (but not many), a flock of 6 Bullfinches high over the seawall, a Brambling and a Snow Bunting.

A couple of Hours at Glynde Gap

I spent this afternoon on the top of the sea cliffs at Glynde Gap, it made a nice change to go somewhere different, and not being blown inside out, like l was yesterday at Pett Level, where l saw 2 Marsh Harriers, 1male and 1cream head. Not much else apart the usual ducks and waders. But this afternoon was alot better with 2,B.T.Divers moving east, 2,Purple Sands,with 20,Turnstone also 1,Redshank, 9,Osytercatchers. Also a Sparrow Hawk and a Marsh Harrier ( cream head) flying over St Leonards. Good Bird watching Pete.
