yesterday 2 green sandpipers were at west rise. an hour's seawatch at beachy in an east wind was a bit slow and everything was miles away - saw about 100 little gulls, 50 commics and an arctic skua. best bird was a black redstart singing its little heart out. the part of the song i most like - the gravelly, crackling bit - was bouncing well off the cliffs.
