Tawny Pipit at Tide Mills.

Late morning I had a call from Matt telling me he had re-found the Tawny Pipit that was first seen earlier in the week. Before I got there he had had some decent close views and managed a few good shots. I had never seen this species before and I was pleased to get a few record shots of this great little bird as it did its roadrunner impression!!

Following this it was a walk along the Cuckmere where once again the local Dunlin put on a great show.

    Thinking of travelling to see to see Tawny tomorrow if it lingers, but not been to Tide Mills before. Any tips on parking and location of bird?

    Cheers

    1. Hi Adam. Sorry not to have responded earlier, I've only just seen your comment. It looks as if the bird has flown off as it hasn't been seen for a while. If it reappears the carpark is on the A259 between Newhaven and Seaford. Head towards the sea and then head West. The bird was mainly on a large flat area near the industrial site.
