Cuckmere Haven and Newhaven

I chickened out of going to Derbyshire again today and ended up spending the afternoon with Phil in East Sussex. Cuckmere Haven was quiet, with four Rock Pipits, three Common Sandpipers, two Stonechats, 45 Swifts, five Sand Martins, 22 Little Egrets, 15 Grey Herons and a feral Barnacle Goose about the cream of the crop...

A quick stop at Newhaven on the way home saw a Fulmar, a juvenile Common Gull and a Polish-ringed Black-headed Gull.
