Black Reds, Ouzel and Dartford + Cetti’s

Lots of late autumn migration this weekend. In our area, a couple of Black Redstarts at Newhaven Tidemills this morning (Jon Curson), a Ring Ouzel and a Dartford Warbler at Hope Gap (Mack Burnside).

Meanwhile, a count of 3-4 Cetti’s Warblers between Southease and Rodmell was notable, as was an upstream Rock Pipit (Liam and Jon Curson).
