Recent late news from RHC:
Two parties of Pink-feet between 15-20 Nov. A flock of 15 over Hodcombe and 2 days later a flock of c30 over Hodcombe. This second flock was also seen flying over Jevington, by birders watching the Rough-leg.
Our 4th and 5th records and the first since 1971, although a number of unidentified Grey Geese over the years have been seen some of which were considered to be Pink-feet.
Rough-legged Buzzard 5 Dec 1 flew past Hodcombe from 12.40-12.50 on the 5/12 and then departed W over cliffs at Shooters Bottom. (Considered the same bird which has been present at Jevington (5 miles from Hodcombe), and it was seen leaving high heading south a short while before being seen at Beachy.
Black Redstart Odd birds present around Hodcombe from late Nov. into early Dec.
Also a Dartford Warbler still present in Shooters Bottom on the 9 Dec (per LP).
