highlight of the day was a confiding grey phal found at princes park, eastbourne. at arlington, it must be of concern that there is now a dead great crested grebe and about twenty herring gulls with two more seemingly on the way out. there seemed to be a fair few chiffs around today and a possibly interesting jackdaw was on eastbourne seafront. a few firecrests around too.

news for the weekend:
sat: pretty quiet in general. about the only thing possibly worth mentioning was a rather grey and white yellow wagtail amongst 70 or so individuals at arlington
sun: still pretty quiet. at arlington, i had gone ahead of me bro to sift through the wags when five mins later he shouted over that he had a caspian gull. there werent many gulls present and i immediately picked up the bird- a juv too (i think i can still call it that). it was present for about 6 mins when it flew of SE. one of the better caspo records in what is the rarest plumage to see in the uk.
