Well the change was good but unfortunately made no difference to my condition. We did manage to get out and about, albeit at a very slow pace - there are some lovely areas along this stretch of coastline.
Splash Point had a few remaining Kittiwake, with a few tri-coloured juveniles still favouring the cliffside. A couple of Fulmar glided past, and a number of Gannet were feeding off-shore. No rare seabirds but a nice spot to sit and relax.
The highlight was a half hour walk from the Cuckmere Inn along the valley path. Just wish I had more energy because there were passerines here.
Most noteworthy were at least nine Whinchat perched along a line of scrub adjacent to a fenceline. A juvenile Northern Wheatear was here too and I am sure there was something special lurking within the scrub. At least eight Yellow Wagtail flew over and a Greenshank was seen feeding at the end of a creek along with 10 Teal. A Painted Lady battled the breeze along the path. Two Green Sandpiper then flew past, and a Common Buzzard was seen soaring against an arboreal backdrop.
It's therapy in wildlife and I love it.
