25.03.21 Wheatears and Alba Wagtails.

A late afternoon visit to the headland with increasing cloud cover, a rain shower and brisk SW wind.

White Wagtail

Although the ploughed field at Birling Gap has lost its appeal for the gulls it has attracted a flock of about 12 alba wagtails with a 50/50 split between White and Pied Wagtail both such lovely birds. The two Wheatear reported earlier in the day where still present behind the pub. Having seen one briefly fly across the road on the 17th it was good to savour these two, even if they were quite inactive and hunkered down against the wind. There were also 2 Black Redstart in the pub carpark.
