Easterly winds were hitting the east coast, so we dropped the planned location for Kilnsea. Eventually, everyone saw a "lifer". Once everyone arrived we noted the 4 Little Grebes in the Borrow Pits, and then walked along the sea cliff. There were plenty of Skylarks flying above the rough grass, and a few Meadow Pipits, but little else.

The Yellow-browed Warbler made its distinctive call in the Crown & Anchor car park, but was seen by all, and this was a first for everyone, except the course leader.
