Goring Gap, Ferring Rife and Sullington

An hour seawatch in the morning produced two Red-throated Divers, 25 Gannets, over 100 Kittiwakes, three Common Gulls, 648 auks (mostly Razorbills, one Guillemot identified) and two Wigeon, as well as uncounted Red-breasted Mergansers and Great Crested Grebes on the sea. The female Stonechat was still in the rough area.

A walk along Ferring Rife produced a Snipe and a Chiffchaff. Another Mediterranean Gull was on the beach.

While waiting for Ingrid working on a fish tank near Sullington I took a walk around the nearby farmland, seeing eight Yellowhammers and a Sparrowhawk of note.
