a nice find this evening was a juv red backed shrike showing well along bazehill road, rottingdean. the bird was by the 2 hay troughs half a mile or so beyond the private road sign. also a cool looking juv cuckoo. absolutely no cars beyond the sign. park and walk.
2 honey buzzards flew over west rise late morning.

another quiet weekend. a dead porpoise was on the beach at ovingdean on friday evening (9th). the first returning purple sand was at the marina today. long gone are the days when they returned in the first week of july.  i also collected the set of sussex bird reports from 1972 onwards.
