Yesterday, the Bearded Tits were seen again at the Ouse Estuary Project, by Paul James – for a full trip report see his new blog.

Skuas at Seaford 05.10.08

Nasty day on Sunday, but for those prepared to brave it there were birds to be seen.

Not far away at Newhaven, 3 first-winter Arctic Terns were seen by Alan Kitson (both per SOS sightings).
