Black Redstart in the Old Trapping Area taken earlier this month.

28th October, 2009. Beachy Head
Arrived just before 7.00 am with Doreen to a beautiful calm warm morning. As we arrived at Birling, the car park was virtually full due to the arrival overnight of a film crew filming Brighton Rock. We worked all the usual sites on the Headland including the Cliff Path & RDME was ringing in the Hollow. Generally the area was very quiet, with very little moving over but the weather made up for this. Birds seen included a Brambling & 2 Redpolls in the wood, 2 Chiffchaffs, 2 Great Spotted Woodpeckers, 7 Stock Doves West and a single Dartford Warbler in the gorse above Belle Toute wood. RDME had a very successful morning catching Redpolls with 65 ringed.
