From the Clifftop

 I don't seem to be doing as well as some in my moth trap !-  too windy or clear . I can't compete with a Monarch either-but I did manage a useful butterfly record on the Firehills this morning-a Wall Brown. I can 't recall seeing one in Hastings CPNR but might have done, on checking the excellent new Sussex butterfly Atlas I found that this is the only site in the far east of the county where it was recorded during the 2010-14 survey period; still there then.

I was really hoping  for some migrant birds, and there were a few Willow Warblers about, but also 2 Crossbills flew E low over my head, and a Tree Pipit was near coastguards. 3 Stonechats were at the east end of Firehills, including 2 juvs., 97 Cormorants roosting on the rock platform Lee Ness was a record count for me.
