A yellow browed warbler was seen on Saturday but unfortunately the highlight was probably a greylag over sheepcote, surprisingly a site first! Dreadful today with next to nothing anywhere, overhead or in the bushes.

This weekend, the highlights were 2 yellow browed warblers and a rather nice caspian gull. the seagull was on newhaven west beach late afternoon (today).

So that's it then, back to work today, shame as theres obviously stuff out there waiting to be found. Me and me bro had the 3rd-13th off work and once again thinking big was the way to go, unfortunately this is sussex and a couple of padder finds was the best we could do. My best find was a rose coloured starling (my 4th county find), whilst Ian bagged a barred warbler and yellow browed. Birding was quite hard work, with not a lot generally going on from day to day, over head still no siskins or redpoll but loads of reed buntings. Other bits and bobs included tawny pipit 7th (not found, present previous day), 2 firecrest in Harry's bush (11th), 5 ring ouzels and 93 Brent geese sheepcote (11th), woodlark sheepcote (12th) and little gull at the res (13th). However, also a contender for best find was a wood warbler which spent 3 days in ovingdean up to the 13th. The latest county record i think. On the final day, a juv male goshawk complete with jesses was in Harry's bush. Roll on next year!
