The other end

Very few bird-watchers approach the reserve from the south end at Winchelsea Beach, yet this area holds an intriguing variety of habitats (not all on the reserve) and the enticing prospect of finding something new since, as I said, not many people go there.

More warblers, including a few more Chiffchaffs were in The Wood and then out across the grasslands of Castle Farm were 4 Wheatears and a Barn Owl.

The least expected bird, however, was a f Merlin flying W along the seawall. They don't normally arrive here till October but 3 have already been seen in Sussex this month.
