We sea-watched from 07.30-09.00 just small numbers of Red-throated Divers moving and a few Auks.

Great-crested Grebe 5 on the sea
Gannet 25 E
Pintail 6 E (3 drakes)

On our way home we briefly stopped off at Newhaven harbour with around 60 G.B.B.Gulls and 1 English L.B.B.Gull but no sign of any unusual gulls.
