John and I then went over to Beachy Head where 2 roosting Tawny Owls were the highlight. We also saw female Black Redstart, 4 Stonechats, male Wheatear, male Blackcap, 2 Willow Warblers, 2 Chiffchaffs and a Goldcrest. We couldn't find a male redstart or any firecrests that had been seen earlier.

12 April. Sparrowhawk low across Middle Road in Shoreham. Peregrine and Rock Pipit at Southwick and local Herring Gulls A4AM, A4AW, A5HH & A5MD by the University of Sussex Sports Centre.
09-11 April. Peregrine at Southwick.
08 April. 2 Ringed Plover, 108 Sandwich Terns, a Rock Pipit and a Wren on Southwick Beach, 2 Ringed Plover on Portslade Beach. By all accounts two Spoonbills flew east 10-15 minutes after I'd cycled west along the coast although I would probably have missed them anyway.
