Back to the Clifftop

We've been away in Chile for some time, returning to climatic extremes and jet lag. Sunny this morning though, so I took a quick walk along the Clifftop to Warren Glen.

A pair of Stonechats in the rabbit field suggests they will breed again this year, a singing male Dartford Warbler elsewhere probably won't though as they tend to move on. 5 singing Whitethroats were my first [none in yet when we left], as was a lone Swift over the house. The  4 Belted Galloways were dozing in the sun at the top of the Glen, I was interested to see two Jackdaws plucking "wool" for nest material from their backs-selecting only the white stuff from the middle band !

As I walked back to Fairlight a Siskin flew over, and then, remarkably, I heard a Bee-eater calling over Coastguards, then several times more out to sea. Frantically scanning the sky I was able to pick out its   silouhette distantly over the sea, apparently heading for France. A Wheatear dropped into the rabbit field further on, and the pair of Ravens flew over.
