and then to Eastbourne... Day 3

Our last day in Eastbourne and time for a shortish (7 mile) walk before (a late) lunch (bringing the total over 30 miles in 3 days)!

We started at Jevington and walked over a hill to Alfriston for a lovely cup of tea in a local tea room there, I passed on the cake but everyone else tucked in!

There were some lovely views en route including this field with the light playing across it:











and this view of the chalk white horse on the hills around the Cuckmere river valley:
















Again there were fews birds around, we spotted some Long-tailed Tits close to Alfriston, including this one:

















Heading down from Alfriston to Exceat this Yellowhammer was perched in a shrub singing away, unfortunately he refused to turn around:

















Finally as we headed toward the Golden Galleon and the end of our holiday, this female Reed Bunting exhibiting fresh plumage :













A cracking break taking only four days' holiday but providing a nine day break, ensuring we were fully able to relax and unwind.
