First Wheatear of 2010

The first local Wheatear of the spring found yesterday at Hope Gap, Seaford Head, yesterday, by Liam Curson (via SOS sightings).

A Bird in the bush….

A 1st winter Red breasted Flycatcher found by Jon Curson in Harry`s bush at Seaford Head/west side of lower Cuckmere valley late morning  proved quite flighty and difficult to follow as it flitted up, down and through the branches of a couple of sycamore trees mostly in the shade, only occasionally standing still to give good views, therefore only a rather poor ` record shot` was obtained. An excellent find though.
