Cuckmere Haven - report by Nick Barlow

Thursday, 11 September 2014

What a beautiful place! On a calm, mild and often sunny day, we walked to the beach and back along the paths on the west side of the Cuckmere estuary. After crossing the Exceat bridge we passed the Cuckmere Inn (previously the Golden Galleon PH).An eventful day with some excellent sightings. Mute Swans and Canada Geese above the bridge, and then a pair of Kingfishers near the pub. Little Egrets (7 in one group), Grey Herons, flocks of up to 40 Curlews, Mallard and Teal on the meanders, ditches, and water meadows. In the thickets and scrub we noticed House Sparrows, Dunnock, Linnets, Greenfinch, many Robins, Chaffinch, and Goldfinch (with one charm of around 100 birds). More...
