From the Clifftop to Hastings

With the moth trap back in the shed [though on the warmer Thursday night I trapped 13 species, including a long overdue Feathered Thorn], and not much at sea, I walked through the Country Park to Hastings yesterday.

As usual in winter it was pretty quiet, no Goldcrests, no Stonechats, but plenty of birds in the Barley Lane fields, notably 80 Chaffinches on sunflowers, and 15 Rooks with c100 Carrion Crows and a similar number of Jackdaws.

Lots of gulls around the fishing boats included a high count of 270 Great Black-backs, with these on the harbour arm were 12 Cormorants that have taken to roosting there. Almost all the other gulls were Herring Gulls, which I checked for Caspians, but still no luck, otherwse 1 LBB Gull and 1 Kittiwake. 13 Turnstones were pottering amongst the boats.
