Purley, Sovereign Harbour and Southease

In the morning, a stop-off at Maidenhead Aquatics in Purley co-incided with a fly-over redpoll. I dropped Ingrid off at Devil's Dyke for a hike and headed to Sovereign Harbour in Eastbourne in a failed attempt for the long-staying Black Guillemot, a Raven and a Redshank being the only notable species observed. Before picking her up at the end of her route, I spent a little time by the River Ouse at Southease, noting two Little Grebes, two Little Egrets and one each of Redshank, Kingfisher, Cetti's Warbler, Meadow Pipit and Grey Wagtail.
