Not much to report. The weather’s been continuously rubbish, and I’ve been keeping dry.
Early last week, a couple of local Firle scarcities – a Reed Warbler along the Bostal Road (there are plenty at Glynde and Beddingham during the summer, but not so many on the downland at Firle), and a couple of Coal Tits in a mixed flock of Blue Tits, Great Tits and Willow Warblers.
Grey Wagtails continue to be seen or heard daily – at least two, but more probably three or more around the village rooftops and particularly at Place Farm, where today there was one feeding around the cattle shed.
Not far away, an Osprey at Arlington Reservoir yesterday, and also one ‘near Barcombe’ today. Also at Arlington, Black and Common Terns, and some good stuff at Cuckmere Haven, where both Wryneck and Grey Phalarope have been seen today.
