Beautiful morning with just the lightest SW breeze in the air.
I wonder what breeding population this bird might belong too, May 4th seems a late date for a male to be arriving on the south coast. Or perhaps the fringes on the wing suggest this is a 1st summer male, late to the party.
Very quiet visit to the Hollow first thing with only a single Willow Warbler seen and probably the same two Lesser Whitethroat singing (one in eastern side of Hollow the other in Cow Gap) with another non-singer seen in the Gap too. Other than a male Wheatear, there was little of interest. A small group of Swallow were loafing about near Bedes School and 2 Swift passed over.
Kris Gillam found a Hooded Crow at Birling Gap mid afternoon.
