On the 30th we paid a visit to the Cuckmere during the afternoon when the tide was out and walked to the scrape and back. Unfortunately no sign of any returning migrants but 12 Little Egrets, plus the usual suspects.
Two broods of Shelduck, the first with just 2 small young and the
second with 9 large young
Family party of Canada Geese
I have seen this goose on a number of occasions in the Cuckmere
over a number of years. It seems to fit the hybrid cross of Canada
Goose and Grey-lag Goose and these can be very variable.
My first Marbled White of the year - No doubt I will being seeing
several hundred over the next few weeks on Beachy Head.
