A very bright, brief and blustery seawatch from Birling Gap for an hour at about 9am in a strong S to SSW wind.
I made no specific counts and only had binoculars many birds were way out but there was a steady stream of Kittiwake visible. I could comfortably call c20 Sandwich Tern passing within range of the optics as well as c30 Common Scoter and c40 Brent Geese. There were also many Common and Black-headed Gull heading east too. 3 Red throated Diver and a fine reasonably close Black throated Diver. Very little on land bar a heavily pollen laden Chiffchaff in the wood. A brief late evening visit to West Rise where c20 Sand Martin were feeding over the lake in the gloom of last light.
