22nd June, 2015 Church Norton and Littledene

An evening visit to Church Norton to see the Terek Sandpiper which showed well although fairly distant in excellent light. Also the Hudsonian Whimbrel was showing distantly.
News of a party of 10 Bee-eaters were showing at Littledene near Glynde, so we tried our luck and manage to see 3 roositng in a tree at around 9.30 pm.
An exceptional evening birding in Sussex
