Sightings at Rodmell beginning to warm up… several reports via the SOS site in recent days, including those of 60+ Golden Plover with the increasing numbers of Lapwings, plus 20 Dunlin and Curlew, with small groups of buntings and Skylarks also noted.
Reflecting the influx elsewhere in the county, a Woodcock seen on Christmas Day in Firle, by Paul Stevens.

From a moving car at dusk last night: a bulky, round-winged wader flying quickly across the road at Arlington village, towards the reservoir. Presumably a Woodcock.
A few minutes earlier, impressive numbers of Jackdaws and Rooks going to roost in Abbot’s Wood, near the Old Oak Tree.
