Seaford to East Dean walk.

At Splash point at the end of Seaford Prom' Kittiwake chicks have taken to the air.
Kittiwakes are a joy to see before you set off up the headland.  Click here to go to the RSPB site on Kittiwakes.

The view back to Seaford and Newhaven and below towards the Seven Sisters last Saturday.

On a bramble in the middle ground was a Linnet.
And newly arrived from the Continent, a Clouded Yellow butterfly, below.
 It is out of focus as I was not prepared to follow it over the cliff!

The tide was out and the river was fordable, if a little painful on bare feet.
A route across open access land affords great views, including of the site of the second world war spitfire runway, below.

From the cliff path, the path towards Gales is rich with flowers and butterflies.  Clustered Bellflowers, above and a Painted Lady, below from France.
Chalkhill blues, Meadow browns, Peacocks, and Gatekeepers were abundant.
Lovely too, to see a Small copper.
