3rd January,2011 Beachy Head & Cuckmere

On the journey to Beachy, we had a Barn Owl along the road side near Plumpton

Highlights at Beachy included only our second ever Egyptian Goose since 1960. It was first seen a long way out to sea off Birling and then headed towards us before headed off West. Also 248 Red Throated Divers, 550 Auks sp. and a Med Gull in the fields near Birling.

We then stopped off at the Cuckmere, and had 45 Whitefronts & 8 Barnacle Geese.
