I was passing through Sussex briefly today and so I thought it would be rude not to go and have a look at the Desert Wheatear at Normans Bay. A rather blustery and cold experience but well worth it as the Wheatear is a bit of performer, showing well at times. Got me thininking when I last saw one in the UK and I can't seem to remember ever seeing one in the homeland. Even had to ask Steve B and he couldn't think of a time of me seeing one. "Memory loss" isn't that a sign of old age?
Image below shows the area that the Desert Wheatear tends to prefer, it is pretty much a case of just sit and wait and it comes to you.
