Once again a strong NNE wind which again made birding very difficult looking for migrants in the bushes. We covered most of the sites on the head including the Cliff Path but didn't attempt the Birling loop. Nice early morning arrival of thrushes of which the majority quickly moved off inland but otherwise very few migrants seen in the bushes and visible migration was very poor although the highlight was another Red Kite which drifted E and proved to be a different bird to that seen on the 10th.
Red Kite 1 drifted E @ 10.45 over the top fields. (Different plumage to that seen on the 10th)
