13th Sept 2015 – A new Wryneck

My first day on Beachy Head for 8 days. It started bright with an east wind, turning cloudy with noon rain clearing by mid afternoon.

A new Wryneck at Belle Tout.

A nice variety of autumn migrants with the highlight being a new Wryneck (David Cooper) just east of Belle Tout wood. I spent time at all the major sites and the below totals are for all areas combined.
