(Roger, Bob and Keith first visited the Old Trapping Area during the early morning and had Dartford Warbler, Firecrest and Black Redstart with Goldcrests and Chiffchaffs but these birds all moved off east shortly after their arrival. They also saw a Merlin and Ring Ouzel nearby).
House Martins feeding low over the downs near Belle Tout.
Few of today's Goldcrests moving inland above Birling during
the early morning. One flew out and tried to land on my head.
Virtually all had gone by 08.30am.
