|my favourite view at Beachy - looking over Birling to Hope Gap|
|Birling Gap and Belle Tout from the west|
|Dark Green Fritillary, about 10 were seen between Birling and Belle Tout lighthouse along with 25 Marbled Whites|
|Pyramidal Orchids on the Seven Sisters near Crowlink|
|presumed limosa Black-tailed Godwit on the Adur|
|the long bill and unbarred white belly of the second bird suggest limosa too although the fading light make it look darker than it was|
Saturday 28 June. Morning and evening low tide visits to the Adur were unproductive although 2 juvenile Black-headed Gulls were the first I've seen this year. 35 Swifts were huntinng over the airfield and later 15 were over our road. An afternoon walk around Rackham with Megan was expectedly quiet with a family of 5 Mistle Thrushes in Parham Park best.

Monday 23 -Friday 27 June. Up to 12 Swifts were screaming over our road each evening. The first-summer Black Redstart was singing and seen briefly by Southwick Power Station on Monday morning but not since. Likewise a Peregrine on the chimney while a single Ringed Plover was on the beach on three mornings.
