From the breakwater, sea-watching such as Brent Goose, Red-breasted Merganser, Common Scoter, Wigeon, Teal and Shoveler, plus Red-throated Diver, Gannet, auks, gulls and perhaps an early Sandwich Tern or Great Skua. A Kittiwake colony is viewable along the cliffs to the east.
1Fulmar and Kittiwake wheel along the cliffs and there’s a good chance of a Raven or Peregrine. Meadow Pipit and Pied Wagtail are typical overhead early migrants, plus Black Redstart and Rock Pipit among the chalk cliffs and Wheatear and Sky Lark on the golf course fairways. Scan the sea for incoming Swallows and martins.
2Scan for pipits, larks, wagtails, thrushes and finches. Common Gulls and Lapwings should be moving. Check the fields for Wheatear, Stonechat and Black Redstart.
3The copse is a good spot for Firecrest, Chiffchaff and Blackcap, plus tits, finches, Treecreeper and Great Spotted Woodpecker. Nearby scrub attracts Yellowhammer, Bullfinch, Linnet and also Stonechat.
