Cuckmere Haven birds, 18th November 2012

These meanders of the former course of the Cuckmere river are rich in bird life.

You will need binoculars to see them.

Above, cormorants, heron, oystercatcher and a gull.
There is a redshank in there somewhere

On the river bank itself was a gull and a redshank.

The little bird to the left of the gull is a little grebe.  It spends a lot of time under the water.
It looked like close to a hundred black-backed gulls in this field.

There was a small flock of greenfinches on this island.

The Seven Sisters as viewed from Cuckmere Haven beach.
Right on the skyline was a stonechat.

To escape the crowds we returned to Exceat via open access land and the South Downs way path.

There were large flocks of Canada geese in the Cuckmere valley.
Another magical day out in Sussex by the sea.
