A still and bright day. I visited Belle Tout, Birling Gap, Long Down and Shooters Bottom.
Looking west from Shooters.
A Ring Ouzel above Birling Gap was a surprise for the 4th December otherwise very quiet for birds of interest. Just a small number of a Blue and Great Tit seen along with 3 Long tailed Tit (one ringed), 3 Goldcrest and Treecreeper all between Belle Tout and Long Down woodlands. There were c60 Fieldfare and c10 Redwing in the berry bearing Hawthorns on Long Down. A pair of Stonechat in the set aside field with decent numbers of corvids, Starlings and Skylark. c25 House Sparrow and 5 Corn Bunting around Cornish Farm buildings. 2 Siskin went over.
