Very few Willow warblers so far, in fact only two singles recorded myself so far this spring and in this remarkable heat I expect birds are passing through quickly. Perhaps with some cloud and a few showers forecast for tonight there may be an arrival tomorrow.
Today eight Red kites were over Hastings Country Park mid morning. Seven together thermalled westwards towards the Old Town and Ore, joined by several Buzzards. Otherwise there were some more Whitethroats and one or two Lesser whitethroats.
A watch from the Pier early afternoon gave over 20 Sandwich terns east along with a flock of ten adult Mediterranean gulls. A sole Swallow came in.
