Goring Gap and Highdown

An early walk at Goring Gap saw a Serin catch my ear as it flew west over the beach, presumably the the bird from three days ago. Yellow Wagtails have been thin on the ground this spring so I was glad to hear then see one heading north. Other birds included a 2cy Mediterranean  Gull, four Swallows, a Little Egret, three Sandwich Terns and 16 Greenfinches.

Highdown offered a Lesser Whitethroat and a Meadow Pipit singing, at least five Red Kites and four Buzzards, two Kestrels, a Great Spotted Woodpecker, three Swifts and a Bullfinch.
